Sassafrass, Cypress & Indigo : a novel
Items in S-Space are protected by copyright, with all rights reserved, unless otherwise indicated. Black women critics, namely Spillers and hooks, have criticized that the existing language and the various forms of articulation utilizing such language have been objectifying black women either as an un-being or as an ahistorical symbol. Such phenomenon is witnessed not only within blatant racism but in black community as well. For instance, the Black Arts Movement, which raised a slogan of resistance against racism, heralded a near mythic, monolithic body of blacks. This grand political agenda to promote black solidarity marginalized black women by condoning and appropriating male superiority. Upon such a hostile ground for a black woman to stand autonomous, establishing an alternative form of language or ways of self articulation becomes ever more crucial for black women writers. This paper focuses on the process of rejuvenating such heritage and channeling it as a form of radical, creative power through the three sisters.
For Charleston, South Carolina sisters Sassafrass, Cypress, and Indigo, the journey to self-knowledge is uniquely their own. Not only a work of fiction, it is an almanac, cookbook, correspondence, dream book, play, poem book, spell book, and more. What results is an expression of Black feminist knowledge production. Across the novel, the sisters must plumb their resources for solutions to various hardships praxis as they grow older and eventually live apart from their mother and each other. Project MUSE promotes the creation and dissemination of essential humanities and social science resources through collaboration with libraries, publishers, and scholars worldwide. Forged from a partnership between a university press and a library, Project MUSE is a trusted part of the academic and scholarly community it serves. Built on the Johns Hopkins University Campus.
By Ntozake Shange. Where there is a woman there is magic. If there is a moon falling from her mouth, she is a woman who knows her magic, who can share or not share her powers. A woman with a moon falling from her mouth, roses between her legs and tiaras of Spanish moss, this woman is a consort of the spirits. Indigo seldom spoke. There was a moon in her mouth.

No more buried lives: The theme of lesbianism in Lorde, Naylor, Shange, Walker
Martin's Press. The novel, which took eight years to complete,  is a story of three Black sisters, whose names give the book its title, and their mother. The family is based in Charleston , South Carolina , and their trade is to spin, weave, and dye cloth; unsurprisingly, this tactile creativity informs the lives of the main characters as well as the style of the writing. The story starts with Indigo, the youngest daughter of the family, sitting amongst her beloved hand-made dolls, which each have names and personalities that emerge over the course of the novel. Before the reader learns much about the other sisters or mother, Indigo begins menstruating, is gifted an old fiddle by Uncle John, and consequently initiated into a cult-like group of pre-adolescent boys called the Jr. Geechee Captains. Indigo's first section is full of informal mappings, remedies, and tales such as "Moon Journeys: cartography by Indigo "  and "To Rid Oneself of the Scent of Evil: by Indigo ".
