Identity, Knowledge, and Toni Morrison's "Beloved": Questions about Understanding Racism

Hypatia 9 (3):1 - 18 (1994)
In discussing Drucilla Cornell's remarks about Toni Morrison's Beloved, I consider epistemological questions raised by the acquiring of understanding of racism, particularly the deep-rooted racism embodied in social norms and values. I suggest that questions about understanding racism are, in part, questions about personal and political identities and that questions about personal and political identities are often, importantly, epistemological questions.
