Race, gender, and power in America : the legacy of the Hill-Thomas hearings by Anita Hill ( Book )
5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 1,402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Anita Hill's testimony at the Senate confirmation hearings of Clarence Thomas provided the most dramatic representation of the emergence of a distinctive black woman's voice in American public life. Race, Gender, and Power in America is a powerful collection of essays that examines the context and consequences of the hearings, charting the unfamiliar terrain of race and gender representation. Edited by Hill and Emma Coleman Jordan, Professor of Law at Georgetown University Law Center, and including the first published essay on the episode written by Hill herself, these essays identify and analyze the emergence of gender discontent among African Americans
Reimagining equality : stories of gender, race, and finding home by Anita Hill ( Book )
7 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 985 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

"After her astonishing testimony in the Clarence Thomas hearings, Anita Hill ceased to be a private citizen and become 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 groundbreaking 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 detailed narrative of the Senate Judiciary proceedings do we reach a new understanding of how Washington -- and the media -- rush to judgment...."

"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"--from C-SPAN store web page
