Minorities in the Media.
Sherard, Regina G., Comp.; And Others
The four reports in this compilation focus on the role of blacks in the various media. The first report provides a general discussion of the status of blacks in the media, and notes that it has been largely analogous to their political and economic development. The second report traces the changing image of blacks as it has been portrayed on television, in both entertainment shows and news coverage. It also discusses the advent of black owned television stations. The third report considers the lack of a black presence in journalism and the subsequent lack of news coverage in the black community. The final report analyzes the role of image of blacks projected in movies from "Birth of a Nation" to the recent television movie, "Beulah Land." (FL)
