On Friday, Nov 8, Eugene Lang College The New School For Liberal Arts hosted a riveting conversation between Scholar-in-Residence, acclaimed feminist, scholar and activist bell hooks (pictured left), and Melissa Harris-Perry (pictured right), founding director of the Anna Julia Cooper Project on Gender, Race, and Politics in the South, Professor of Political Science at Tulane University, author, and host of MSNBC’s  Melissa Harris-Perry.

The focus of the engaging dialogue was race, black womanhood, politics, media, and love.
