Images of Black Women in Afro-American Poetry
Rushing, Andrea Benton
Black World, 24, 11, 18-30, Sep 75
Notes that, in recent years, the image of Black Women in Afro-American poetry has become more autobiographical and that categories used images of white women -- i.e. formlessness, passivity, instability, confinement, the shrew, and the witch, and others -- are mostly not appropriate to Afro-American images of black women because they are rarely seen as weak or frivolous or incompetent.
