Abstract

In Chapter 8, Tracy Fessenden situates Billie Holiday within a context of proscription and oppression, a context which both constrained Holiday and was rejected by her. A black woman in early twentieth-century America, Holiday faced racial and gendered oppression and segregation, but her career as a jazz icon firmly denied the kinds of limitations that should otherwise have defined her identity.
