The Committee on Race, Equity and Inclusion, the BMCC Library and CETLS are co-sponsoring a bell hooks Book Club for the  Spring 2022 semester. To honor Dr. hooks’ legacy and to further our work on culturally relevant, anti-racist, and trauma-informed pedagogy, the participants will read Teaching to Transgress: Education as the Practice of Freedom.

Session 2 discussions will cover chapters 4-6.

  • Chapter 6, “Essentialism and Experience” guided by Agustin McCarthy
  • Looking for volunteers for remaining chapters

During the Zoom sessions, there will be breakout rooms by chapter, and we’re looking for volunteers to (gently) guide  these conversations. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Hollis at

An electronic copy of the book is available here through the BMCC Library.

Please register in advance to receive a Zoom link via email. For more information, email Hollis at
