Hillbilly Solid 11.12: bell hooks

bell hooks


In the November edition of Hillbilly Solid, host Silas House welcomes bell hooks, an author, activist, feminist, poet, teacher, and artist from Hopkinsville, Ky.

hooks, currently a Distinguished Professor in Residence in Appalachian Studies at Berea College, is the author of over thirty books, including the widely-influential Ain’t I a Woman? Black Women and Feminism, and a brand-new book of poetry, Appalachian Elegy.  She and Silas discuss a number of issues & things, including hooks herself, writing, her work, Appalachian identity, and much, much more.  And, as always, Silas spins some of his favorite music, including cuts in this program from My Morning Jacket, Jessica Lea Mayfield, Cat Power, and more.
