Multiculturalism can be illustrated on dual social reception, both being realistic and utopian simultaneously. Highlighting its former negative discourses, the African American author Gloria Naylor sets her novel, The Women of Brewster Place on an extensive multicultural background, creating a mixed, socio-cultural environment. Apart from highlighting the predicament of women, implicitly, the paper delves into the various dimensions of multiculturalism, the multi-social issues, existences and experiences of the coloured folks, concerning the black women in particular. It also probes into the studies that become a necessary offshoot of the concept of multiculturalism particularly in an African American context, governing the issues related to identities, sexualities and psychological degeneration.
