    One thought on “Salvation: Black People and Love”

    1. Like I said before, Bell's writing is poetically beautiful and tells the truth. I always have to have a pen and paper to jot down quotes from Hooks. This is my 8th book I had read from Bell Hooks.

    2. I really like this book, but some of the views were so seasoned by a child of the fifties that it was ever so slightly difficult to translate those views to modern day. Sometimes hooks presents examples too much to one extreme, making it difficult for those who not accustomed to her sometimes sarcastic but straight-forward nature to be put off by such "radical" thinking. But the book is a well-articulated commentary on the way the history of African Americans, especially those in poverty to midd [...]

    3. brilliant read expanding on hooks' thinking in all about love, the first book in her love trilogy. in each chapter, hooks lays out amazing insights about love in different contexts. hooks weaves together of other intelligent thinkers, historical contexts, and personal insights in a way that produces incredible instruction for how to actually make progress as individuals, groups, and societies. she points out that, without a love ethic, our social movements are bound to recreate the same problema [...]

    4. I'm embarrassed to admit this is my first whole book by bell hooks. I'd heard of her before in general sweeps of feminist thinkers and Black woman authors, and knew enough to lump her with Audre Lorde, but I would consider it a lamentable condition of my homogenous upbringing that it took me so long to finally encounter hooks' work on its own terms.[The stage I'm at with my own writing and exploring tools for personal revelation means that these reviews are often going to be more about me and wh [...]

    5. I discuss Salvation, love, and the Obamas here:morethanaweekendor continue reading below.Salvation of the Black Family (?)In the world of an Obama presidency, race relations in this country have never been more confusing. After the election, CNN conducted a poll asking both African Americans and European Americans if Martin Luther King's Dream has come true on January 19, 2009. The results, I believe, are astonishing. A full %69 of African Americans believe that his Dream has been fulfilled, com [...]

    6. One of the many bell hooks’ books that she’s written has surfaced again, in light of the subject of Black Family Studies. A cultural critic and feminist, bell hooks takes on issues of the decolonization of black folks, urbanization, ghettoization, poverty, the system of black male patriarchy, queerness, subordination, denigration of non-nuclear families (single mothers, neglectful fathers), rap culture and misogyny, self-love/self-hatred, normalized violence of black bodies (specifically bla [...]

    7. A spiritual sequel to All About Love, hooks does it again in this engrossing book about all different facets of love, specifically in the African American community. She clearly outlines how the intersectionality of race, gender and sexuality affects how we love ourselves and others. A definite must read for those who want to nourish their souls.

    8. I enjoyed reading this book due to the fact that it helped bring to focus the loving, kindness that has enriched the history of the Black community. hooks makes it clear in each chapter, that a love ethic is needed to heal the wounds of black people left by the ills of white supremacy, capitalism, sexism, etc.

    9. Part of me is really grateful to have started this book in the summer and procrastinated finishing it until the winter of this year. 2016 has been a difficult one, but never have hooks' criticisms of mass media, patriarchy, and white supremacy been more poignant. This book was published in 2001 (the beginning of another challenging political era) and I can't help but wonder what bell hooks thinks of where we are today. In terms of popular culture mass media, we have made some progressive steps. [...]

    10. hooks does a sound job with such an potentially idyllic thesis- the quest of salvation through self-love and self-respect. the most striking revelations to me had to do with the loss of community for african-americans due to integration. ultimately the progressive necessity of ending the terrible laws of segregation is manifest but i hardly considered the immediate and lasting affect. one example: in the days of segregation affluent black families lived side by side, attended the same schools an [...]

    11. It's been 15 years since I read this book for the first time. As an impressionable college student, I knew the power of this book and it framed my outlook on love, but as a mature adult seeking to inspire the world this book gives the words and the strength necessary to do so. It's powerful and poignant from beginning to end and hits on the most sensitive relationships in the community from mama love to heterosexual love to the love and acceptance of homosexuality. I recognize quickly that this [...]

    12. quotes from this book."Black folks and our allies in struggle who care about the fate of Black America recgnize that the transformative power of love in daily life is the only force that can solve the myriad crises we now face.""material status is offered as a balm to wounded spirits""young black males don a mask of hardess to avoid acknowleding emotional vulnerability.""Mass media tends to ignore the diversity of black experience. The worst aspects of black life are fictionalized on television [...]

    13. albeit staged in the US and in the fifties, as one based in the south (afrika: cpt& maseru) it opened my mind to the multifaceted fabric of love spiced, contextualised in a particular space and people without shoving norm/visual accounts of black love, esp. given the lack of 'showing' love (which is taught to one from birth) by the black community

    14. Hooks was introduced to me in a women's studies course years ago. Her searing honesty is a treasure. My own approach is more economically oriented, but the things she says should give one serious pause.

    15. Bell Hooks holistic viewpoint of family, community responsibility pertaining to youth and societal influences and preconceived notions of male and female roles that sometimes negatively impact our relationships.

    16. I blush to admit that I didn't read this book very deeply; but I was knocked over, in a good way, by bell hooks' proposition that the militants of the 1960's talked the community out of the Golden Rule.

    17. Continuation of her best-selling "All About Love: New Stories" on the meaning of love (or lack of it) in American culture. It's ground breaking and opens you up to love with her highly intellectual and inspirational critical analysis.

    18. bell hooks is an incredible writer, and this continues that legacy. She is inspiring how she talks about love among black people. You'll definitely get something out of this one.

    19. An amazing book that will make you look for deeper connections and love from every and any relationship that you have.

    20. Definitely the best book I've ever read on the history of black love in the US (both gay and straight). A must read.
