bell hooks

bell hooks, an internationally renowned poet, author, feminist, professor, cultural critic and social activist, was known to many in Hopkinsville as Gloria Jean Watkins.

Gwenda Motley told WKMS that the community in which her sister, best known by her pen name bell hooks, was raised played a significant role in her academic and personal development.
Several events will honor the Hopkinsville author and feminist scholar during Women's History Month, including a celebration at the library, a special exhibit at the museum, a history program at the Hopkinsville Brewing Co., screenings of interviews featuring hooks, and more.
