A Review of Joanne Kilgour Dowdy’s Readers Of The Quilt: Essays About Being Black, Female And Literate
English Department of Oxford University.ORCID iD: 0000-0001-9649-0873

Abstract [en]

What does it mean to be black, female and literate in the USA today? That is the question that the authors in Readers Of The Quilt are trying to answer. Literacy, according to the contributors to this essay collection, is more, or something else, than the technical mastering of reading and writing. It is a way of reading, being recognized and gaining a voice in the world. Each essay explores, in one form or another, what literacy means in the lives of black women in the USA today. As such, the collection offers both compelling examples and frustrating generalizations.
