COMM 2069 - Black Television Culture

Description
Employing a cultural historical approach, this course examines the sites of production, reception, representation and industry as it relates to the African American images that are granted tenure on television screens. Beginning with an overview of radio representation and the ways that they morphed into television representations, this course traces the early scripts available for televisual blackness. The course will progress more or less chronologically in order to investigate the ways black cast television and black representation has shifted and changed throughout the medium’s history.
