Reimagining equality : stories of gender, race, and finding home by Anita Hill( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 988 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1991, Anita Hill's courageous testimony during the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings sparked a national conversation on sexual harassment and women's equality in politics and the workplace. Today, she turns her attention to another potent and enduring symbol of economic success and equality-the home. Hill details how the current housing crisis, resulting in the devastation of so many families, so many communities, and even whole cities, imperils every American's ability to achieve the American Dream. Hill takes us on a journey that begins with her own family story and ends with the subprime mortgage meltdown. Along the way, she invites us into homes across America, rural and urban, and introduces us to some extraordinary African American women. As slavery ended, Mollie Elliott, Hill's ancestor, found herself with an infant son and no husband. Yet, she bravely set course to define for generations to come what it meant to be a free person of color. On the eve of the civil rights and women's rights movements, Lorraine Hansberry's childhood experience of her family's fight against racial restrictions in a Chicago neighborhood ended tragically for the Hansberry family. Yet, that episode shaped Lorraine's hopeful account of early suburban integration in her iconic American drama A Raisin in the Sun. Two decades later, Marla, a divorced mother, endeavors to keep her children safe from a growing gang presence in 1980s Los Angeles. Her story sheds light on the fears and anxiety countless parents faced during an era of growing neighborhood isolation, and that continue today. In the midst of the 2008 recession, hairdresser Anjanette Booker's dogged determination to keep her Baltimore home and her salon reflects a commitment to her own independence and to her community's economic and social viability. Finally, Hill shares her own journey to a place and a state of being at home that brought her from her roots in rural Oklahoma to suburban Boston, Massachusetts, and connects her own search for home with that of women and men set adrift during the foreclosure crisis. The ability to secure a place that provides access to every opportunity our country has to offer is central to the American Dream. To achieve that ideal, Hill argues, we and our leaders must engage in a new conversation about what it takes to be at home in America. Pointing out that the inclusive democracy our Constitution promises is bigger than the current debate about legal rights, she presents concrete proposals that encourage us to reimagine equality. Hill offers a twenty-first-century vision of America-not a vision of migration, but one of roots; not one simply of tolerance, but one of belonging; not just of rights, but also of community-a community of equals"--Provided by publisher

10 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Six years after her testimony during Senate hearings to confirm Clarence Thomas' appointment to the Supreme Court, the author reveals how her charges of sexual harassment against her former employer changed her life.$bTwenty-six years before the #metoo movement, Anita Hill sparked a national conversation about sexual harassment in the workplace.After her astonishing testimony in the Clarence Thomas hearings, Anita Hill ceased to be a private citizen and became a public figure at the white-hot center of an intense national debate on how men and women relate to each other in the workplace. That debate led to ground-breaking court decisions and major shifts in corporate policies that have had a profound effect on our lives--and on Anita Hill's life. Now, with remarkable insight and total candor, Anita Hill reflects on events before, during, and after the hearings, offering for the first time a complete account that sheds startling new light on this watershed event.Only after reading her moving recollection of her childhood on her family's Oklahoma farm can we fully appreciate the values that enabled her to withstand the harsh scrutiny she endured during the hearings and for years afterward. Only after reading her detailed narrative of the Senate Judiciary proceedings do we reach a new understanding of how Washington--and the media--rush to judgment. And only after discovering the personal toll of this wrenching ordeal, and how Hill copes, do we gain new respect for this extraordinary woman.Here is a vitally important work that allows us to understand why Anita Hill did what she did, and thereby brings resolution to one of the most controversial episodes in our nation's history

Mark Bradford : tomorrow is another day by Mark Bradford( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mark Bradford's exhibition for the U.S. Pavilion at the Venice Biennale is born out of his longtime commitment to the inherently social nature of the material world we all inhabit. For Bradford, abstraction is not opposed to content; it embodies it. His selection of ordinary materials represents the hair salon, Home Depot, and the streets of Los Angeles--both the culture industry and the grey economy. Bradford renews the traditions of abstract and materialist painting, demonstrating that freedom from socially prescribed representation is profoundly meaningful in the hands of a black artist. Bradford's longtime social and intellectual interests will be present in the Pavilion, most notably in his concern for marginalized people, both their vulnerability and their resiliency, and the cyclical threat and hope of American unfulfilled social promise. Coming at a moment of terrible uncertainty, 'Tomorrow is Another Day' is a narrative of ruin, violence, agency, and possibility, a story of ambition and belief in art's capacity to engage us all in urgent and profound conversations, and even action.

"The committee heard testimony from University of Oklahoma Law Professor Anita Hill during the first day of the reopened confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee and U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Clarence Thomas. Professor Hill testified on her charges that she had been sexually harassed by Judge Thomas when he was her boss in the Department of Education and the EEOC in the early 1980's. Professor Hill, speaking in level, measured tones, told the committee of her career, her relationship with Judge Thomas, and the behavior of Judge Thomas toward her in the workplace. She said Judge Thomas often asked her for dates, which she turned down, and often instigated discussions of sexual matters which she refused to take part in. She said Judge Thomas explicitly discussed aspects of pornographic movies he had seen, and emphasized his own sexual prowess. Professor Hill said she attempted to avoid opportunities for extended conversations with Judge Thomas, but transferred with him to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission when he was promoted to head the agency because she had no alternative job. Committee members questioned Professor Hill on the substance of the incidents involving the sexual harassment charges, on her subsequent relationship to Judge Thomas after she left the EEOC, and her reasons and possible motives for stating the charges. Committee members specifically questioned Professor Hill on the graphic and explicit nature of the incidents of sexual harassment she charged against Judge Thomas"--C-SPAN store web page
