Description

This interdisciplinary and creative study examines how African American culture is presented in American films and other media, and is a provocative re-reading of the historiography of black culture. The author examines and interprets a number of cultural texts deriving memory as interpreted by Freud and by Franz Fanon, mixed with Black Liberation Theology and Islamic mysticism.
