Inhaltsangabe: On December 9, 1995, Toni Cade Bambara died of cancer at the age of 56. In its obituary of her, The New York Times called Bambara, "a major contributor to the emerging genre of black women's literature." Deep Sightings and Rescue Missions offers an expected treasure: a rich selection of Bambara's writings, most of which have never before appeared in print.
Rezension: Toni Cade Bambara published a novel and two collections of stories, yet before her death in December 1995, she had not published new work in 14 years. Her long silence was all the more ironic because Bambara had, in 1970, edited a ground-breaking anthology of black women's writing called The Black Woman. Here, Toni Morrison presents six hitherto unpublished stories and six essays, striking work that shows Bambara's view of the writer as cultural worker and her concern with politics and the empowerment of black Americans.
