The purpose of this study is to examine ways in which Black female artists have created narratives through art as self-definition. These artists have responded to stereotypical stories and images of Black women by creating self-defined stories and images. This study specifically focuses on Faith Ringgold because she has combined narrative and visual art in story quilts that present Black women as empowered, multidimensional people. The concept of creating narratives through art as self-definition for Black women was further investigated through narrative inquiry and arts-based research.
