A Politics of Tenderness: Camille A. Brown and Dancers "BLACK GIRL: Linguistic Play"

" BGLP thus offers a unique performance through which to theorize Black womanhood. Its respect for the non-verbal invites audiences to study embodiment without necessarily relying on pre-existing logocentric vocabularies of stereotype. This is not to say that dance is antithetical to the word, or that the word cannot fully capture dance. Rather, to argue that movement is its own vocabulary—one that can make visible that which Black American women have been historically prohibited from fully saying out loud.”
