Black Metaphors

How imbedded is racism in visual & written language? Where do the past & present “touch” when it comes to conceptions of blackness? Cannot wait to find a copy and finish reading Professor Cord J. Whitaker’s Black Metaphors, 10/10 recommend!

Black Metaphors states plainly that its investigation into matters of race in the European Middle Ages is urgently informed by the agonizingly critical events of today, from the Black Lives Matter movement to the commonplace, quotidian racisms visited on black citizens of the United States. This book imparts stunning insights and will grace many a bookshelf for a long time to come.
—Geraldine Heng, author of The Invention of Race in the European Middle Ages
