  • Incidents in the life of a Slave Girl, Book by Linda Brent
  • Masters could persuade their slaves to commit to them

  • Sander Gilman: Black bodies, white bodies towards an iconography of female sexuality in late nineteenth century art, medicine and literature
  • Spike Lee, 1988 Film Daze
  • Tina Turner, Violent husband created her image for her
  • Rihanna, over sexualized stereotype.
  • Fashion images, Black women in distorted poses sometimes with straight hair
  • Super model Iman, Early 1970’s
  • Tyra Banks, needs to be exotic but still white enough for us to think she is ‘beautiful’ Italian Vogue made her look white, and in another shot made her into a sexual savage.
  • Vanessa Williams first black winner of Miss America. Some people didn’t like this, they liked it more when she was naked in Penthouse magazine
  • Positive Representation, Dreaming Rivers, black woman as sexual, beautiful and a mother. Passion of remembrance.
