Abstract : Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris
This  study  examines  the  discrimination,  exploitation  and  oppression  of  black African women  in western societies in Suzan Lori Park’s Venus. Specifically, the  study  investigates  how  the  playwright  portrays  liberation  of  the black  Africanwomen from such oppression using Spivak’s  concept of Essentialism and Mohanty’s transnational as  part of modern postcolonial feminist theory. The  study  reveals  many  ways  in  which  black  African   women  could  be emancipated  from  discrimination,  exploitation, oppression  and  ensure  their voices  are  heard.  These  include  embracing  education,  creating  awareness  on racism   and   objectification of   African-American   woman,   opposing   the pseudoscientific  belief  of  white  supremacy,  rewriting  the  history  of  black African women and recreating identity for African-American females
