Toni Morrison`s Song of Solomon has been considered that it`s primary concerns lie in the racial discourse. It is not only because the Afro-American folk culture such as myth, storytelling, blues, rootworking, conjuring is deeply embedded in the text, but also because the novel deals with a black man, Milkman`s awareness of self and community, who abandons the white-centered and capitalistic values and accepts the more humanistic and communal Afro-American culture. In this novel, however, some aspects make it irrelevant to read the novel only in terms of the racial discourse. For instance, while the main plot depicts Milkman`s successful search for his past and culture as well as his identity, in the subplot are described the oppressed lives of black women and their failed search for selves. Therefore the black women`s narrative hidden in the subplot undercuts Milkman`s narrative and questions the validity of reading the novel affirmatively in the context of Milkman`s achievements. Morrison, above all, inscribes the woman-centered consciousness in the text by rewriting the white-centered traditional myths and the sexist Afro-American myth. Besides, the moral center of the novel is Pilot, the black woman who leads Milkman to return to his past and recognize his black identity. In this sense, the total meanings of Song of Solomon can be properly understood only when equal attention is paid to the hidden narrative of black women. Thus Morrison succeeds in revealing the forgotten or forcibly buried lives of black women. The narrative of black women shows that the narrow and frustrated lives of most black women and the discontinuity or absence of their female tradition are inseparably related to not only the patriarchal society but the crisis of the contemporary black community in general which assimilates the white middle class values and the ideology of post capitalism.
