About this item

In an effort to understand representations of African Americans in popular culture, this accessible study delves into ox’s musical drama Empire, evaluating the show’s role in the evolution of the African American images and stereotypes in American TV and other media of popular culture. The book explains why the show is so popular and uses an interdisciplinary perspective to analyze various issues the show raises, with discussion of the black family on TV, the flawed feminism of Cookie Lyon, and black masculinity in Empire. The book also examines the black community’s reactions against the show and accusations that it represents a return of Blaxploitation. Annotation ©2018 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
