Voice of Equality in the Works of Toni Morrison and bell hooks At the 223 years our country has been instituted, the way black people are perceived in society has always been less than acceptable. Good leaders and motivators such as Abraham Lincoln and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. have come and gone, their voices and action have attempted to modify the role of black people in society. But even in now times, equality is still far away, and there is not any voice like what blacks relied on in those days. Instead of marches in Alabama, or speeches in Washington, the plight of these blacks are heard throughout literature. Small voices in literature which creates a big effect on society. Toni Morrison and bell hooks use words to inspire people of colour. Morrison and hooks open eyes to this so-called free nation we live in with the goal of showing society's condemnation of black existence, interracial relationships along with black lady in a traditionally men's roles. From the 2 stories by Toni Morrison titled, "On the Backs of Blacks" and "Friday about the Potomac," she attempts to establish the effects of racism in the Usa, the oppression of African Americans in society, along with the racial and sexist aspects of the Anita Hall and Clarence Thomas Hearings. Back in "Sorrowful Black Death isn't a Hot Ticket" and "Seduction And Betrayal" bell hooks criticizes the way black life is portrayed the movies: Crooklyn, The Bodyguard, and The Crying Game. Toni Morrison and bell hooks think that mainstream culture condemns black existence as meaningless and unimportant. In Toni Morrison's "On the rear of Blacks", she clarifies the oppression the black community experiences out of the white society. She tags it.
