Product Description

Richardson (English, African, African diaspora studies, gender studies, U. of Texas at Austin) shows that black lesbian literature, rather than a specialized niche, enriches the entire black experience in literature, informs it, and defines it. She makes the point that the archives speak to the black audience, starting with neo-slave narratives of power and property, tendered by desire; she recalls the small moments of queer blues in Muhanji's Her, Bridgeforth's encompassing all of gender in remembering the black rural south, recalling Jackie Kay's Trumpet, Donna Brand's erotic and diasporic In Another Place Not Here, and encountering anti-black violence in several works. The result is a chance for the literature in the niche to come out into the mainstream, where it belongs. Annotation ©2013 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
