Parks’ In The Blood: An Image of a Black Woman Who Is More Sinned against than Sinning

Ashraf A. Hadia


This paper seeks to reveal how Parks managed to present an image of a black woman who is brutally victimized by the social system through analyzing her play, In the Blood (1999. In that play, the social ills of hypocrisy, violence, discrimination, and sexual harassment are strongly emphasized. In a satirical style, the author could show how society blames and punishes those who are mainly created by its different own institutions and organizations at the same time. Although she does not give solutions, she calls for a reform of these agencies to let all people, whether poor or rich, receive the same level of societal care.
