Description: bell hooks talks about class - the "elephant in the room" - the unnamed subject we all know is central to our culture and its problems.

Movements for social change could be larger and more powerful if they were braoder, including more class diversity. But middle-class activists often find themselves frustrated in mixed-class social change efforts, sensing mistrust or even hostility for no apparent reason. Part of the problem is that, in contrast to race and gender, it's not possible to quickly assess who's in what class, there is little shared vocabulary, few resources for help, and the topic is often taboo.

"Class Matters fills this vacuum..."

Betsy Leondar-Wright is a long-time economic justice activist who has been Communications Director at United for a Fair Economy since 1998.

Review(s): "One of the biggest myths of U.S. corporate culture is that America is classless: we are supposedly all middle class. Betsy Leondar-Wright not only shatters this myth, she gives us inspirng stories and practical tools to heal the wounds of class inequality in our society." - Dr. Kevin Danaher, cofounder, Global Exchange
