Talking Back to “Talking Back”: An analysis of incest discourse in Black America

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

As Black feminists, we talk about “breaking the silence,” “speaking out,” “talking back,” “telling your story.” As bell hooks tells us, this is a “gesture of defiance that heals” and creates the “liberated voice” (1989). In the first part of this paper, I provide a sociohistorical contextualization of incest in the Black American community. Then I explore the cultural definition of incest by looking at how we “define” incest in the Black American community through discourse analysis of several different types of sources. Once I “define” incest, I provide a discussion and end with conclusions and recommendations. Through looking at how Black Americans talk about incest, I am engaging in a project that looks at alternative explanations for the causes and distributions of mental health problems within a sociohistorical, body-centered frame.
