Description

Analyzing the impact of black abolitionist iconography on early black literature and the formation of black identity, this book argues that the visual offered an alternative to literacy for current and former slaves, whose works mobilize forms of illustration that subvert dominant representations of slavery by both apologists and abolitionists.

Auteur

Michael A. Chaney is Assistant Professor of English at Dartmouth College.
