The National Book Award-winning novel that launched the brilliant career of Gloria Naylor (1950-2016) In her heralded first novel, Gloria Naylor weaves together the stories of seven women living in Brewster Place, a bleak-inner city sanctuary, creative a powerful, moving portrait of the strengths, struggles, and hopes of black women in America. Vulnerable and resilient, openhanded and openhearted, these women forge their lives in a place that in turn threatens and protects - a common prison and a shared home. Adapted into a 1989 ABC miniseries starring Oprah Winfrey, The Women of Brewster Place is a contemporary classic - and a touching and unforgettable read. "[A] shrewd and lyrical portrayal of many of the realities of black life . . . Miss Naylor bravely risks sentimentality and melodrama to write her compassion and outrage large, and she pulls it off triumphantly." -The New York Times Book Review

Black American women have often been victimized by perpetrators of racism and sexism. They experience existential angst and have no clearer place in society than black men. As outsiders, they are silenced and have few rights to speak for themselves. In their struggle for their rights, the marginalized group must take on racial and sexual forms of oppression. This thesis aims to analyze the racism and the sexism black women suffer in Gloria Naylor's The Women of Brewster Place (1983) and how they construct their selfhood and survive in a tight corner through the power of community. The concepts drawn from the black feminism of bell hooks, Alice Walker, and Barbara Christian are adopted to analyze the above-mentioned themes in the novel. Audre Lorde's theory "lesbianism" is also applied to explore the confinement of lesbians. In the novel, the female characters confront racial and sexual hegemonies which relegate their social status to society's bottom. To overcome their plight and to assist in the search for their identity, black women tell readers how they were encouraged and empowered through the strength of sisterhood and the unity of the community..
