Abstract
The author explores how race, identity and representation were factors in specific works of art by two African-American women artists working in the 1980s and 90s, Carrie Mae Weems and Lorna Simpson. She observe how both artists chose to use black and white photography as a language through which to criticize racial oppression and subjugation of black women and also analyze critical texts dealing with observing the differences between blackness and whiteness in racial politics.
