Brenna Wynn Greer is a historian of race, gender and culture in the 20th century United States, who explores historical connections between capitalism, social movements and visual culture. Her first book, "Represented: The Black Imagemakers Who Reimagined African American Citizenship" (University of Pennsylvania Press), examines the historical circumstances that made the media representation of black citizenship good business in the post-World War II era. She is currently at work on her second book, which examines the postwar development of Black commercial publishing and its significance within U.S. culture and Black life.
