Suzan-Lori Parks continues her examination of black people in history and stage through the life of the so-called Hottentot Venus, an African woman displayed semi-nude throughout Europe due to her extraordinary physiognomy; in particular, her enormous buttocks. She was befriended, bought and bedded by a doctor who advanced his scientific career through his anatomical measurements of her after her premature death.
