520 8 |a Deploying the trope of 'speaking in tongues' to theorise the multivocality of black women's writing, based on the reconstruction of a fundamentally spiritual practice as critical concept, Mae G. Henderson also enlists a second trope, 'dancing diaspora', to theorise the narrativity of black women's dance, based on the notions of 'performing testimony' and 'critical witnessing'. Together, these tropes are meant to signify a tradition of black women writing and performing, a tradition privileging the pre-eminence of voice and narration, along with the roles of listening and witnessing.
