Abstract/Description: Corregidora posits Blues as a conduit through which Ursa may address the transgenerational trauma which has plagued the matriarchy of her biracial genealogy. This trauma underscores the importance of memory and oral tradition in African-American culture, and demonstrates the personal and political agency by which it may be characterized. Blues functions as an agent of self-determination and a subsequent contradiction to the tragic mulatto trope, my written Thesis will analyze and draw connections between Corregidora and “Was Your Mama a Mulatto?”. My goal is to wholly identify the role of Blues in the alternate presentation of the tragic mulatto figure in Corregidora.
