Description

Investigates the role of visual representation in the establishment of real and fictional black identity, focusing on how African-American artists have responded to or used stereotypical images and how these responses may have impacted white identity and social power.

Auteur

MICHAEL D. HARRIS is associate professor of African and African American art history at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. An artist and curator, he is a longtime member of the Chicago-based artists' collective AfriCobra.

Résumé
Traces black artists' responses to racist imagery across two centuries, from early works by Henry O Tanner and Archibald J Motley Jr, in which African Americans are depicted with dignity, to contemporary works by Kara Walker and Michael Ray Charles, in which derogatory images are recycled to controversial effect.
