LLS 1358 - African American Images in the Media

Credits: 3 hrs.
In a society where self-expression and collective expression are encouraged, multiple ways of viewing the world are bound to emerge. Undeniably, the mediated landscape (film, television, video, music, etc.) is an expressive arena where multiple ways of viewing the world are obvious. This course invites in-depth exploration of the evolution, growth, arrested development, historical assaults, even deep-seated hostility of African American images in various mediated forms. At its core, this course centers intentionally on films and television shows by and about African Americans. Attention is devoted to the social and historical construction of mediated images of African Americans.
