One thought on “Works Cited & Links

  1. Hi —
    I’m looking to find out the name (and if possible the contact information) for the photographer who took the photo of the array of variously colored crayons all marked “flesh.” I am an English professor at University of California, Irvine, with a book on race and skin forthcoming from University of Chicago Press, and my editors and I are interested in the possibility of using this photo as the cover image.
    Thanks in advance for any help–

    Irene Tucker
