While most discussions of Black women s engagement with, and contribution to, the discursive space of the culture assume an oppositional or reactive stance, Ryan argues that the disposition reflected in the texts she examines tends to be relational and proactive, conferring an autonomy that the gravitational pull between opposites lacks. This inter textual reading constitutes a multimedia auteur criticism of a collective artistic vision. Codice libro della libreria AAC9780813923703
