Summary: This essay collection by the author of Sisters of the Yam; Black Women and Self-Recovery (BRD 1994) "is inspired by the work of Paulo Freire. . . . Ms. Hooks attempts to put Mr. Freire's pedagogy of liberation, which holds that students should be active participants and not passive consumers, into practice in America's multicultural context. . . . A genuine, pedagogy of liberation, Ms. Hooks suggests, will honor the need of marginalized groups to assert posi
tive identities while rigorously challenging their own myths about themselves and the sources of their oppression. . . . A truly liberatory education, Ms.Hooks {maintains}, . . . will do more than stimulate critical consciousness; it will also be an experience in which 'healing' and 'recovery' can replace the 'pain' and 'abuse' of childhood." (N Y Times Book Rev) Index. Widely admired as a leading black intellectual, hooks is also an inspired teacher. Here, she offers her ideas about teaching that fundamentally rethink democratic participation. These essays face squarely the problems of today's classrooms, including racism and sexism. Ms. Hooks sees the gift of freedom -- the freedom to think critically -- as a teacher's most important goal.
