about this item

FOX’s musical drama Empire has been hailed as the savior of broadcast television, drawing 15 million viewers weekly. A “hip-hopera” inspired by Shakespeare’s King Lear and 1980s prime-time soap Dynasty, the series is at the forefront of a black popular culture Renaissance yet has stirred controversy in the black community. Is Empire shifting paradigms with its depictions of blackness or promoting pernicious stereotypes? ? Examining the evolution and potency of black images in popular culture, the author explores Empire’s place in a diverse body of literature and media, data, and discussions on respectability.
