Slavery to Liberty: A victorious Journey of a Marginal Black Woman in Toni Morrison’s Beloved
African-American Literature intersects in its portrayal of the subverted marginal
through Literature. It has received universal acknowledgement since the works of both the
men and women writers attempt to show the poignant struggles undergone by the African
Americans, not for money or power but for asserting or claiming their basic human right of
parity and liberty. But men writers have failed to witness the sufferings of women in the
enslaved community. Women are given much importance in the literary arena of AfricanAmerican women as they are the most affected group and the jeopardy of the male dominant
society. They are not only the victims of the white dominant society but also of their men.
The African- American women writers have highlighted the liberated spirit of black women
which will redeem them from their bitter journey of slavery to the victorious state of freedom.
One of America’s best women writers who rescued the black women from their enslavement
is Toni Morrison. HerBeloved is the best fiction that has represented the black woman
Sethe’s journey from slavery to liberty.
