This paper discusses the novel "The Bluest Eye" by Toni Morrison. It explores the ways that Morrison vividly and starkly develops the theme of racism against African-Americans in America in the 1940s, within the novel. It discusses the interactions between three Black girls and the ways that they contend with White-dominated American standards of beauty, femininity and worth.
