The Tituba Black Witch of Salem Series is rooted in Maryse Condé’s novel "I, Tituba: Black Witch of Salem", written in 1992. This piece of historical fiction captures the story of a woman of color who was a pivotal figure during the Salem Witch Trials. Fascinated by Condé’s depiction of Otherness, racism, gender, sexuality, as well as cultural and religious hegemony, Hinkle compiles an abstractly drawn narrative of Tituba’s experiences that intermingles with her own experience of inhabiting a black and pregnant body for the first time.
