2004 Outstanding Contribution to Publishing Citation
Colored Pictures: Race and Visual Representation by Michael D. Harris (Hardcover) For excellence in scholarship, the BCALA Literary Awards Committee presents the Outstanding Contribution to Publishing Citation to Michael D. Harris for Colored Pictures: Race and Visual Representations (University of North Carolina). His work explores the role of visual representation in the construction of black identities in the United States. Harris depicts, with images and text, characterizations of blacks during the 19th and 20th centuries. These depictions substantially formed the foundation of white identity and social power that undermined the self-esteem of African Americans.

The Black Caucus of the American Library Association (BCALA) awards recognize excellence in adult fiction and non-fiction by African American authors, recognition of a first novelist, as well as a citation for Outstanding Contribution to Publishing.
