In the Media: Myriam J. A. Chancy Discusses bell hooks’ Legacy with NBC News

On NBC, Myriam J. A. Chancy, Hartley Burr Alexander Chair in the Humanities, discussed bell hooks’ legacy within academia and her influence on Chancy’s own creative work. “For me, bell hooks was a towering voice in American academia and intellectual life,” she said. “She made certain concepts on the subjects of race, feminist, gender, class and love accessible to a public beyond academia while being unrelenting in her advocacy for Black people and particularly for Black women in the pursuit of a better, more just society for everyone.”
