Ten years ago, bell hooks astonished readers with Teaching to Transgress: Education as the Practice of Freedom. Now comes teaching community-a powerful and heartfelt book that will enrich our lives. bell hooks writes candidly about her own experiences, her siblings and her family life, and of her decision to resign her position as Distinguished Professor at City College in New York. Teaching, she explains, can happen anywhere, any time-not just in college classrooms but in churches, in bookstores, in homes where people get together to share ideas that affect their daily lives. One of the keys to bell hooks's success as a teacher and speaker is her deep belief that the ideas of feminist and cultural theory can be simplified and made relevant to the lives of working people. "No one is born a racist, " she writes. "Everyone makes a choice." The pervasiveness of racism in society--the "worship of whiteness"--devalues us all. To "teach community" means, for example, to work against the effects of such socialization and to resist even the subtle ways in which racism is reinforced. Spirit, struggle, service, love, the ideals of shared knowledge and shared learning-these values motivate progressive social change. Teachers of vision know that democratic education can never to confined to a classroom. Teaching-so often undervalued in our society--can be a joyous and inclusive activity. bell hooks shows the way.
