Kimberly Nichele Brown examines how African American women since the 1970s have found ways to move beyond the "double consciousness" of the colonized text to develop a healthy subjectivity that attempts to disassociate black subjectivity from its connection to white culture. Brown traces the emergence of this new consciousness from its roots in the Black Aesthetic Movement through important milestones such as the anthology The Black Woman and Essence magazine to the writings of Angela Davis, Toni Cade Bambara, and Jayne Cortez.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Writing the Black Revolutionary Diva is a lovely book. Brown manages to reinvigorate common notions like wellness, healing, recovery, and pain with the kind of critical rigor that makes them useful in cultural studies but refuses to burden them with unnecessary complexity. . . . Writing the Black Revolutionary Diva and its ideas will be instructive for a very long time to come.
