Turning on inspired interpretations of Zora Neale Hurston, Toni Morrison, and Ntozake Shange, "Workings of the Spirit" weighs current critical approaches to black women's writing against Baker's own explanation of the founding, theoretical state of Afro-American intellectual history.
"Brilliant, and tenderly riveted to gratitude as an indispensable facet of analysis, Houston Baker arrives, yet again, bearing the loveliest flowers of his devotion and delight: thank God he's here "--June Jordan
