Summary

Channeling Blackness examines the television industry as it has shaped the inclusion and portrayal of black Americans historically and in the present day. It features readings by some of the preeminent scholars in the study of media and race, including Sut Jhally, Molefi Asante, John Fiske, and Herman Gray. While exploring cultural matters, economic considerations, and representations of blackness, the book focuses on the key question: what is the ideological work being produced?
