autobiography to downplay her uniqueness, Jackson seems more willing to

They are celebrities. If a black "celebrity or star" is worthy of discourse, she is the
incomparable Angela Davis. In 1974 Random House publishes Angela Davis: An

celebrity status, but the autobiography, in particular the preface, also, indirectly
brings home to me that, from the slave revolts to the civil rights and black
nationalist movements, the participants have the courage literally to place their
lives on the line.

22 Angela Davis: An Autobiography things. Deanna addresses her own
uniqueness in her admiration for the coyote: “He's nobody's pet; he doesn't
belong to anybody but himself” (King- solver, 2000, 176). To a macho game

order him: “Leave it . . . the hell . . . alone” (ibid., 323). In all three of Kingsolver's
novels, the uninhibited protagonists function ad- mirably as wives/lovers, mothers
, and libertarians.
