The noted author and feminist thinker bell hooks spoke at Portland State University on April 26,2002 to a crowd of over 1,500 people in an event sponsored by student groups and the Women's Studies program at PSU.
The crowd, which was largely women and students of both sexes, gave hooks many rounds of applause, especially during her attacks on "imperialist white supremacist capitalist patriarchy".
However, since bell hooks is not Michael Ruppert nor Michael Moore, no reporting on her speech and the effect of the event in the African-American community, the student community and the community of women in Portland will appear in the main section of Portland IndyMedia. Nor will an analysis or listing of her literary work over the past 30 years and its influence on both feminist thinking and within African-American debates appear on Portland IndyMedia. Ditto for the interview. No photos either.
