ImagoInterest: Celebrating Black History Month (which should be every month), honouring Bell Hooks and her work as an advocate for intersectional feminism AND continuing to collectively work against systemic oppression.

"Meaningful resistance to dominator culture demands of all of us a willingness to accurately identify the various systems that work together to promote injustice, exploitation, and oppression.

-Bell Hooks
