One of our country's premier cultural and social critics, bell hooks has always maintained that eradicating racism and eradicating sexism must go hand in hand. But whereas many women have been recognized for their writing on gender politics, the female voice has been all but locked out of the public discourse on race.

Killing Rage speaks to this imbalance. These twenty-three essays are written from a black and feminist perspective, and they tackle the bitter difficulties of racism by envisioning a world without it. They address a spectrum of topics having to do with race and racism in the United States: psychological trauma among African Americans; friendship between black women and white women; anti-Semitism and racism; and internalized racism in movies and the media. And in the title essay, hooks writes about the killing rage--the fierce anger of black people stung by repeated instances of everyday racism--finding in that rage a healing source of love and strength and a catalyst for positive change.

Her analysis is rigorous and her language unsparingly critical, but Hooks writes with a common touch that has made her a favorite of readers far from universities.Bell Hooks's work contains multitudes; she is a feminist who includes and celebrates men, a critic of racism who is not separatist or Afrocentric, an academic who cares about popular culture.



Con el nombre de Gloria Jean Watkins, bell hooks nació en 1952 en Kentucky (Estados Unidos). Prolífica escritora y activista feminista negra, su trabajo ha estado siempre presidido por el estudio y la crítica de la interseccionalidad de género, raza y clase. Obras suyas son Ain't I a Woman? Black Women and Feminism (1981), Yearning: Race, Gender, and Cultural Politics (1990), Where we stand: class matters (2000) o Writing beyond race: living theory and practice (2013).
