Black Males and Television: New Images Versus Old Stereotypes.
Douglas, Robert L.
Western Journal of Black Studies, v11 n2 p69-73 Sum 1987
This paper focuses on historic portrayal of black males in service and support roles in the media and their relation to social reality. Both television and films use glamorous sophisticated trappings seemingly to enhance the image of black males, but the personalities of the characters they play remain stereotypic. (VM)
