Description

Dr. Sarr's work is a comparative study of six novels by black women both Anglophone and Francophone. She argues that black women writers by tackling complex issues of lesbianism, incest, rape, prostitution, polygamy, battering and mental illness, have lifted a veil of secrecy and broken a silence on issues that were previously not revealed outside of the community and often not spoken of inside. Writing becomes a weapon, an act of disclosure.
