... Clarks conclusions about the dolls tests, and the controversial role these
conclusions played in the famous Brown v. Board of Education case, see
Kenneth B. Clark, Prejudice and Your Child (Boston: Beacon, 1955; rpt. 1963). In
her essay in this volume, Willis provides another layer of biographical meaning to
the doll she prefers. The choice of a brown-skinned doll forms one of the many
links between Willis and hooks, who recounts in her memoir. Bone Black:

As she states in Wounds of Passion, neither of her autobiographies is
conventional, “the kind of 'tell all' tabloid-like revelations,”22 but these are
experimental memoirs, with dreams and fantasies of the writer being a major part
of the material. Bone Black: Memories of Girlhood is particularly important toward
understanding hooks's further works, because it explains her radical views and
follows her route to becoming a writer and a feminist social and cultural critic. In

We cannot assume that a white girl's experience of girlhood is the same as that of
a black girl. A black girl's experience of girlhood would surely differ from that of a
white girl and the effects on memories of the experience of girlhood vary
culturally, historically, economically and linguistically. It is this lack of distinctive
representation and a rejection from history that prompted theorist and feminist
cultural critic bell hooks, to write her memoir Bone Black: memories of girlhood (
1996), which ...

From her Bone Black: Memories of Girlhood we learn of hooks' struggle with the
stereotypes which restricted the real possibilities for black women's identities in

gradual release ...
