Overview

This book catalogs the work of 29-year-old artist Michael Ray Charles, whose imaginative use of racist stereotypes is a pointed effort to deconstruct history's visual language of degradation. His appropriation of such now-taboo cultural depictions as Aunt Jemima and Little Black Sambo serves as a cutting commentary on the ways in which these caricatures still permeate our social landscape. This book, a catalog from one of Charles's most recent exhibitions, offers a wide selection of the artist's work, and includes introductions by Spike Lee and Calvin Reid, as well as a biography of the artist.
