Changing Our Own Words: Essays on Criticism, Theory, and Writing by Black Women
Cheryl A. Wall
Routledge, 1990 - African American women - 253 pages
Writing by and about black women - an activity once regarded as marginal - has become essential to any consideration of the role of literature in society. Black women's writing raises issues of race, class, and gender, and questions the formation of the literary canon, the creation and maintenance of tradition, and the role of the media in controlling perceptions of what matters.
