FLOTUS as 'Nude Slave' on Cover of Spanish Mag | African Iconography | Scoop.it

I think this is interesting? the image iself doesnt denote slavery but the legacy of the painting does so now whenevver we see a woman clad in a sheet it will look slavish? this is a very powerful control of the African image!

 

now, take out the slave issue and we are left with the issue of the imposed nudity of the first lady? ....

 

then take out the imposed nudity and ask why is there this constant fetish with re-modelling Michelle Obama's image?


imagery is everything. this image robs the first lady of her identity, voice, intellect, and visually shackles her to a politically passive subject...
