From the publisher

New York Times bestselling author, acclaimed visionary, and cultural critic bell hooks continues "Love Song to a Nation" trilogy with Salvation, offering groundbreaking, critical insight about Black people and love.

Acclaimed visionary and intellectual bell hooks began her exploration of the meaning of love in American culture with the bestselling All About Love: New Visions. She continues her writings on love and its inextricable links to race, class, family history and popular culture raise one pivotal question: How can we create beloved American communities? Salvation is bell hooks's journey to answer this question--an offering for everyone who cares about the souls of Black people and Black communities. Written from both historical and cultural perspectives, Salvation takes an incisive look at the transformative power of love in the lives of African Americans. Whether talking about the legacy of slavery, relationships and marriage in Black life, gangsta rap culture, addiction, greed, or the failure of Black leadership, hooks always lets us know what love's got to do with it. Combining passionate politics with fresh, contemporary insights, bell hooks brilliantly offers new visions that will heal our nation's wounds from a culture of lovelessness.
