Breaking Bread: Insurgent Black Intellectual Life by bell hooks

These humans have the best ideas of any humans. Full stop.

But the format was underwhelming to me. I understand why they did it -- I love the concept of two friends in conversation, the authenticity and warmth of it. But I found myself wanting to see these talented writers write.

bell hooks: It has been a really healing thing for me to recognize that we are wounded. We are wounded in so many areas that what I think is magical and wonderful is when I meet another Black person who says they are about the business of attending to their wounds. Which means they don’t have to be perfect, they don’t have to have wiped out every trace of sexism, homophobia, classism, and internalized racism. Rather it is the commitment to the process of change and convergence which opens up the possibility of love, renewal, and reconciliation.
