Black Community Voice Echoes on Eradicate of Identity in Toni Morrison’s Novel Home
This present paper discusses Black Community Voice Echoes on Eradicate of Identity in Toni Morrison’s Novel Home. While exploring the twenty-first-century work Home we find the voices, which indicates the voice of the colonised people. A deep study of this novel exposes the events and happenings at the time of colonisation. It also exposes their emotions and feelings. In Home, Frank is the protagonist of the novel, who confronts several difficulties while travelling from Korean War to Lotus. Lotus is a home station of Frank and Frank had worked as an (integrated Army) in Korean War. He travels towards Lotus to rescue his abused sister Cee. It exposes the voice of the native African Americans. Through the character of Frank, Morrison speaks the emotions of the colonised people. There was a fear that each and every thing belonging to them were being abandoned by the coloniser and it could not be recognised by the black people. They want to erect their own identity back in their state. Morrison brings out Frank to exposes the inequality situation of their life in America during the colonised period. The people suffered a lot to walk freely in their land. They were insisted and forced to recognise the culture of the other settlers. Settlers made rules to protect themselves from the aborigines. They made the colonies according to the situation and their convenience.
