So today I'll be talking about 4 (of many) anti-black sterotypes/caricatures that were built to degrade the Black body & justify slavery/racism.

These images make up the four chapters of my PhD thesis: The Jezebel, The Mammy, The Mandingo Buck & The Sambo.

*Sensitive content*
#AuntJemima has been trending since yesterday, for the first time in my 1 year on Twitter! The Mammy stereotype is the chapter I am currently writing. I'll be back at 2:30pm to discuss postcolonialism & ecocriticism in Caribbean literature & my research on the Mammy.
