Summary/Abstract: This paper, through the novel of Black woman novelist Ann Petry, aims to clarify the social and psychological impacts of the period in which the Blacks were pointed as a target for racist discriminations. In this study, we tried to show the survival of a black heroine against all the injustices and tortures towards her and her portrayal in respect with psycho-social perspectives together with the partiality of Ann Petry as a black person. Ann Petry tries to display the identity problem in American community by portraying a character who is a victim of racist behaviors just because of her skin color.
