The Rewritten Narrative of the History of Black Women on a path towards Sexual Liberation and Individual Freedom

In this paper, I examine the journey of Black women in the United States towards sexual liberation and freedom, focusing on narratives of acceptance, rebellion, and reclaiming agency. Through the works of Saidiya Hartman and Hortense Spillers, I explore the struggles faced by Black women, from systemic racism to societal constraints on their sexuality. Ultimately, I argue that despite enduring oppression, Black women assert their identity, reclaim their womanhood, and find liberation through embracing their sexuality and sensuality within societal enclosures.
