Overview

The essays in this volume focus on how African American women, from the nineteenth century to the present, have represented their physical selves in opposition to the distorted vision of others. Contributors attempt to  “recover” the black female body in two ways: they explore how dominant historical images have mediated black female identity, and they analyze how black women have resisted often demeaning popular cultural perceptions in favor of more diverse, subtle presentations of self.   

The pieces in this book—all of them published here for the first time—address a wide range of topics, from antebellum American poetry to nineteenth-century African American actors, and twentieth-century pulp fiction.

Recovering the Black Female Body recognizes the pressing need to highlight through scholarship the vibrant energy of African American women’s attempts to wrest control of the physical and symbolic construction of their bodies away from the distortions of others.

Contributors are Margaret Bass, Dorri Rabung Beam, Michael Bennett, Jacqueline E. Brady, Daphne A. Brooks, Vanessa D. Dickerson, Meredith Goldsmith, Yvette Louis, Ajuan Maria Mance, Noliwe Rooks, Mark Winokur, and Doris Witt. This book also contains a foreword by Carla L. Peterson and an afterword by Deborah E. McDowell.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Leininger-Miller's (art history, U. of Cincinnati) very readable revision of her dissertation surveys the lives and oeuvre of six African-American artists<-->Nancy Elizabeth Prophet, Palmer Hayden, Hale Woodruff, Archibald J. Motley Jr., Augusta Savage, and Albert Alexander Smith<-->with special attention to their years in the rich cultural milieu of Jazz Age Paris. The book is well-illustrated and approachable and will appeal to art historians and anyone interested in art of this time period and the experience as African-Americans of these artists both at home and abroad.
