"The book is distinct and significant because it offers diverse audience-centered analyses of various media representations of African American Life and culture from the perspective of African American scholars. In doing so, the book privileges African American voices in offering insights into how media treatments impact and play a major role in the social formation of African Americans' cultural identity." -- J.D.
