Abstract: »This essay analyzes the ways that Corregidora addresses issues of black female sexuality as they relate to the trauma of slavery. By engaging theories of memory and black feminist criticism, the essay suggests that Ursa liberates herself from historical cycles of oppression by reclaiming her agency and sexuality.« (Source: Mosaic)
