Winner of the International Center for Photography's 1995 Award for Writing on Photography, Picturing Us brings together a diverse group of African American writers, scholars, and filmmakers in the first concerted effort to analyze and respond to the photographic images of blacks through history. The book's contributors--including bell hooks, E. Ethelbert Miller, Angela Davis, and others--examine the personal and public issues embedded in family portraits and news photographs, movie stills and mug shots.
