Book Description

Representing Black Culture provides an innovative and comprehensive analysis of the role that black culture plays in American race realtions. By analyzing films, literature, popular music, education, television, and governmental cultural policy, Richard M. Merelman looks carefuly at how African-Americans as well as whites have represented and projected balck culture into the mainstream. He then goes on to examine how this representation can change American national identity and reduce racial conflict.
