African-American women are often left in a section of their own. They are not masculine enough biologically to earn fair treatment in their own black community. They are not fair skinned enough to earn equal treatment in a predominantly white society. Two discriminations are held in every African-American women’s identity. In a world were the hand you were dealt was so slim it is hard to see true agency in the essence if choice. These identities are influenced by economic factors, class, and of course gender role factors. I urge the viewer to ask is there a correct identity or is there none.I will examine the various identities that black women have chosen or been forced to take in search of what identity does the African-American women wants herself.
