Black Feminism has fully developed to provide Black women their own experience with regards to Black Women’s literature. Black women and men have started to unearth the long ignored ideal for which Zora Neale Hurston is a valid example. The feminist movement has provided a wider horizon for women to turn their thoughts into words. Women have begun to translate their experiences of being suppressed into such literary forms as drama, fiction, and expository prose. From the end of the nineteenth century to the early years of the twentieth century, most women writers have felt that they are in a period of transition. Many of them have been empowered to write about what they are against and to emphasize their request for equality and equal justice for both men and women in the society. The present paper deals with the emancipation and selfhood of Black women in Zora Neale Hurston’s Seraph on the Suwanee.
