Haunted was the third drawing to be completed and was a bit of a departure from the previous ones. I was having a lot of anxiety about the project and decided to depict a nightmare. The ghost of a mammy is confronting the character in a graveyard. The drawing is shaped like a headstone, echoing the location of the graveyard. The dates on the headstones themselves reference significant years during slavery in America; 1861 and 1865 reference the start and end of the civil war. USCT is a reference to the Civil War, it stands for the United States Colored Troops and was placed on the headstones of fallen black soldiers. The other two dates, one is obscured, are pop culture references. Harriet Beecher Stowes Uncle Toms Cabin was published in 1852. If the ghost was not visible the tombstone would have read 1899, the year Aunt Jemima was introduced. As the character confronts the ghost, there is a slippage between the her and myself. In her confrontation, I too am confronting stereotypical images that have haunted our visual culture.
