Telecommunications and Black Americans: A Survey of Ownership, Participation and Control.
A broad, panoramic study was conducted on the activities and the extent of participation of Black people in various telecommunications fields in the United States. The ways in which media technology can be and has been used as a means for educating Black people were examined. Briefly, the ideological perspective of Black education was discussed and defined, but the major emphasis of the extensive survey was on mass media applications and Black people. Commercial television, films and filmmakers, commercial radio, public broadcasting, computer-assisted instruction, educational use of multi-media and communication satellites were dealt with in detail. Successes and failures in these areas were identified, a format for improvement and recommendations for establishment of innovative programs were developed. Bibliography and appendix are also provided. (HB)
