Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Acclaimed visionary and intellectual bell hooks began her exploration of the meaning of love in American culture with the bestselling All About Love: New Visions. Here she continues her love song to the nation in the groundbreaking and soul-stirring Salvation: Black People and Love.

Whether talking about the legacy of slavery, relationships and marriage in Black life, the prose and poetry of our most revered artists and leaders, the liberation movements of the 1950s, '60s, and '70s, or hip-hop and gangsta rap culture, hooks lets us know what love's got to do with it.

Salvation is work that helps us heal — and shows us how to create beloved American communities.

Synopsis:

Written from both historical and cultural perspectives, "Salvation" takes an incisive look at the transformative power of love in the lives of African Americans.
