Anita Hill on Home, Gender, and Race

Tuesday, December 27, 2011

When Anita Hill testified during the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings in 1991, she sparked a national conversation on sexual harassment and women's equality in politics and the workplace. Now she turns her attention to another symbol of economic success and equality—the home. Reimagining Equality: Stories of Gender, Race and Finding Home looks at how the current housing crisis is devastating to families, communities, and cities.

Hi, Leonard, Foreclosure touched me personally a few years ago. It is one of the most devastating experiences a person can have. It can never be forgotten. Now, after listening to Anita Hill’s interview I wonder if I was targeted for a subprime loan because I was a single woman. Eugenia Renskoff

It is wonderful to hear Professor Hill speaking with Leonard. The book is terrific and since she rarely speaks publicly, it is a real privilege to hear her. Ever since the hearings when the country was riveted to the television, she has been a hero of mine. Her autobiography "Speaking Truth to Power" is excellent as well.
