Traci West/Wounds of the Spirit

Uploaded by :

A 3 page book review that also offers the writer's reactions to Traci C. West's Wounds of the Spirit: Black Women, Violence and Resistance Ethics, which is a text that chronicles stories of abuse from numerous African American women. However, as the full title suggests, this is not simply a book about victimization, as it also discusses empowerment and how these women draw upon spiritual resources in order to resist the social forces that seek to dominate them. This point is demonstrated by looking at four representative chapters of this text. No additional sources cited.
