This comprehensive catalogue was created for Lorna Simpson's first major museum exhibition, Nov 21, 1992 – Mar 14, 1993. It presents a foreword by Kevin E. Consey, texts by Beryl J. Wright and Saidiya V. Hartman, multiple color and black and white images, a checklist, an artist chronology, and a selected bibliography. Simpson explores the influence of history and culture on photographic images and text, combining figures of generic black women with objects and texts that require the viewer's ability to decode.
