  2. Becky and Karintha's are some of the short stories that portray double consciousness as will be discussed

Double consciousness is defined as a concept that describes an individual as having an identity divided into several parts. This makes it difficult for an individual to have a sole unified identity. As such, a person with double consciousness may be considered to have two thoughts, two souls or two un-reconciled perceptions towards a certain way of life. This context mainly related to racial relations mainly among American blacks or Negros. Historically, black Americans have always had issues with identity with the American culture. As such, double consciousness makes individuals to have a perception of their own self and world perception.
