Reviews
"A rare book [that] encourages us to look deeply into images of ourselves and carefully select what we accept as truth." --Quarterly Black Review

"Eighteen stimulating essays. . . . A worthy dialogue on an under-analyzed aspect of black history." --Publishers Weekly

"The importance of this collection of photographs and accompanying essays. . . cannot be overemphasized." --Belles Lettres

"The photographs alone. . . merit a trip to the bookstore. . . . One feels prodded to contemplate the interconnectedness of African American identity and visual images in unconventional, enlightening ways." -- Emerge
