Summary
In the history of black America, the image of the mortal, wounded, and dead black body has long been looked at by others from a safe distance. Courtney Baker questions the relationship between the spectator and victim and urges viewers to move beyond the safety of the 'gaze' to cultivate a capacity for humane insight toward representations of human suffering
