Rashid Johnson (born 1977) is an African-American socio-political photographer who produces conceptual post-black art.

Post-black art refers to a paradoxical genre of contemporary African-American art where race and racism are intertwined in a way that rejects their interaction.It is art about the black experience that attempts to dispel the notion that race matters. It uses enigmatic themes wherein black can substitute for white.
