The MacArthur program lauds Williams for creating "a new form of legal writing and scholarship that integrates personal narrative, critical and literary theory, traditional legal doctrine, and empirical and sociological research." Her most recent work is Seeing a Color-Blind Future: The Paradox of Race (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, April 1998).
Lauded as "a leading scholar in the investigation and recovery of the rich legacy of African-American photography," Willis, who once taught at New York University, has edited a number of books, the most recent of which was featured in our July-August issue. Other recent works include Picturing Us: African-American Identity in Photography (New Press, March 1996); Harlem Renaissance: Art of Black America (Abradale Press, March 1994); and Visual Journal: Harlem and DC in the '30s and '40s (Smithsonian Institute Press, June 1996). BIBR extends its congratulations and looks forward to the future work these fellowships will inspire.
