Abstract:

This paper will address the issue of stereotypes propagated by the media during the time of legalized racial segregation referred to as the Jim Crow. Focusing specifically on the images reproduced by the Detroit Publishing Company, the motives and intentions of the images of Tuskegee will be discussed in the context of this period of prevalent stereotypes.

This work will show that, in fact, these images do little in the way of humanizing or sympathizing with the plight of African-Americans; instead, they provide examples of encouraging African-American success through roles similar to those performed in slavery. Even the images of educational institutions, presumably relating to upward mobility, are actually intended not to promote equality, but reinforce nostalgic views of African-Americans by advocating employment in fields of manual labor, entertainment, and service.

Using the Library of Congress archives as a primay source for Detroit Publishing Company images, analysis based on their subject matter and their titles in the context of the work of other scholars discussing Jim Crow imagery of African-Americans in postcards, i.e., "black cards," and in contrasting African-American produced literature of the "New Negro."
