Abstract
August Wilson’s drama pursues the resurrection of African ancestral spirituality within the African-American community and encourages black solidarity by embracing their painful history. Victor Turner’s theory of liminality explains how Wilson’s characters obtain new identities through rituals. Loomis in Joe Turner’s Come and Gone finds his African identity with the help of African ancestors’ revelation and finds “the song of self-sufficiency” for the whole black community by performing self-sacrifice. The creative, subversive power of liminality gives the participants of rituals new possibilities and authority to build their future. By singing blues, the characters perform a ritual through which they heal their spirits and achieve self-empowerment to reconstruct their history. Wilson tries to create a new whole by reconnecting fragmented and dislocated black histories with a collagist technique. Wilson’s characters acquire new identities while his audience gets to shape a new world view through rituals.
