Abstract: »Carlyn Ferrari provides frameworks for students to read the silence of the main character in Gayl Jones's Corregidora (1975) in the context of slavery and contemporary Black womanhood, and to recognize the formal methods by which Jones connects the two; students' final personal reflection invites them to participate in breaking the silence whose legacy of suffering the novel has exposed.« (Source: Hewett, Heather, et al.»Introduction: Literary Studies as Literary Activism.« #MeToo and Literary Studies: Reading, Writing, and Teaching about Sexual Violence and Rape Culture.
