Please join us for the 20th Annual Black Women's Conference honoring bell hooks

Finding Our Place: A Conference in Honor of the Work and Writings
of bell hooks

20th Annual Black Women’s Conference: April 18-19, 2014
This year is the 20th convening of the Annual Black Women’s Conference.  In its history, there are few subjects of interest and important to the lives of Black women the conference has not explored.  As we celebrate this important year of the conference, we turn our attention to the work of a native daughter of Kentucky and preeminent feminist and intellectual, bell hooks.  Over the course of her career, hooks has been a leading thinker on the complexity of the positions of black women in American society and politics.  hooks continues to challenge  us with her current work to be both creative and thoughtful about understanding and making our place. Join us in celebrating the work of this important scholar and two decades of gathering black women in community. - more info:

Presentation- www.Stumbleupon.Com

My presentation on StumbleUpon explained how easy and organized it can be to search through different websites based on what you like and are interested in. StumbleUpon can be used for many things from recreational information, research, blogging, and becoming well known in the social media world. I hope everyone can explore StumbleUpon and find it useful :)

Presentation - Jux
I chose Jux as my story-telling website. It displays a clean and straightforward way of presenting pictures and videos. This website is a wonderful way to express your interests and goals through visuals. You are able to follow other Jux users and use their pictures as inspiration for your own page. Jux is a great way to tell your story and encourage others through photographs.

Presentation deviantArt

I presented deviantArt to the class. DeviantArt is a website available to the public for artists who wish to make their work known to the world. Each profile tells a story about the artist, as does the art in their gallery. DeviantArt is a great community for artists and I greatly recommend looking into it!


I chose to present on This is a website where can post original work and then receive feedback on it. You are also able to give feedback to other users of the website. You can interact further with users by joining forums. The website also offers creative writing classes for free on the website.
