The manicule is a typographic symbol of a hand with a pointing index finger. This talk will discuss art practices and images that point to, away from, and beyond fixed ideas of Black life.

Dr. Courtney R. Baker is a specialist on the impact of visual culture in Black life. She is an Associate Professor in the department of English at University of California, Riverside. Her book, Humane Insight: Looking at Images of African-American Suffering and Death, was published in the New Black Studies series, edited by Darlene Clark Hine and Dwight McBride, by the University of Illinois Press in 2015. She has written academic and popular essays on African-American film, the history of the image in African-American activism, and the ethics of narratives about death. She teaches courses on Black film, African-American literature, race and ethnicity in American Studies, cultural studies, and critical theories of the human and the visual.

Discussion moderated by Bridget R. Cooks.
