Author
  • Daniel Wise (Iowa State University)

Abstract

Have you ever thought about what you see on the silver screen? Is there really more to these projections than meets the eye? This panel will discuss media stereotypes of the African American community that have developed in modern movies and television and how the world of entertainment reflects the image of Black America. Join us for a dialogue that seeks a social perspective as to how television and movies communicate with today’s viewers. Video clips from Undercover Brother, Chappelle’s Show, and Higher Learning, will be utilized for discussion.
