Abstract

No doubt, bell hooks, as an African American cultural critic, seeks in this introductory quotation to rescue from the ashes of modernity the new possibilities of the post-colonial era. To me, she challenges intellectual elitism: the thinker that embraces all things ‘post-modernity’ but from the comfortable chair of Western epistemological privilege. She fundamentally challenges the accepted norm.
