Softcover printing of "Channeling Blackness Studies on Television and Race in America" by Darnell M. Hunt. In excellent used condition. No lines, notes or marks within text. Wear consistent with light use.
Firmly establishing popular television as a central cultural forum in our society, Channeling Blackness looks at how television has profoundly shaped and been shaped by America's ambivalent relationship with blackness. It provides numerous examples of how our current interaction with television distinguishes the lived experiences of today from those of the past. The book also shows how the entertainment function of television often masks its ideological purpose, particularly its role in reflecting and reproducing America's racial order.
