In this research, the writer uses feminism approach and the writer also uses the theory of black feminist byCollin (2000). Black feminist theory emphasizes to give empowerment for women who become the victim of intersection through the collective idea and the experience of black women which divided into two main topics, the first is the power of self-definition, the second is the interlocking nature of oppression in relation with the comparison of the depiction of Americans social condition and black people’s life.Then, the writer applies library research to collect the data and descriptive qualitative to elaborate the data.
