Black looks- race and representation- bell hooks

Black looks- race and representation- bell hooks

Published by Jaron K. Epstein
If we compare the relative progress African Americans have made
in education and employment to the struggle to gain control over how
we are represented, particularly in the mass media, we see that there
has been little change in the area of representation. Opening a magazine
or book, turning on the television set, watching a film, or looking
at photographs in public spaces, we are most likely to see images of
black people that reinforce and reinscribe white supremacy. Those
images may be constructed by white people who have not divested of
racism, or by people of color black people who may see the world
through the lens of white supremacy-internalized racism. Clearly,
those of us committed to black liberation struggle, to the freedom and
self-determination of all black people, must face daily the tragic reality that we have collectively made few, if any, revolutionary interventions
in the area of race and representation.
