representations of race


Old news, but I forgot about it until I had already taught media representations of race. Adding it to the mix next year. On the left is a WWI propaganda poster for the U.S. Army, circa 1917. On the right, the April 2008 Vogue cover by Annie Leibovitz. (Unsurprisingly, a search for this image brought me to a ‘White Power’ website, which cut-and-pasted Obama’s picture on the left image.)
