African Americans in Television: An Afrocentric Analysis.
Tait, Alice A.; Perry, Robert L.
Western Journal of Black Studies, v18 n4 p195-200 Win 1994
Proposes that, historically and contemporarily, African Americans were and are severely underrepresented in the Eurocentric press, portrayed stereotypically, depicted in low-status occupational roles, and denied news or public affairs programs to adequately serve their informational needs. Theories on mass media's impact on society and individuals are discussed, as are black-directed and produced programs. (GR)
