Ceramic Uncles & Celluloid Mammies: Black Images and Their Influence on Culture

Prepared by: Carol Mann Agency

Paperback

Price: $21.50

Overview

Exploring white American popular culture of the past century and a half, Turner details subtle and not-so-subtle negative tropes and images of black people, from Uncle Tom and Aunt Jemima to jokes about Michael Jackson and Jesse Jackson. She feels that far too little has changed in terms of white stereotyping and its negative effects.

Reviews

Patricia Turner has produced a brilliant book marked by subtlety and grace. Her panoramic perspective of black popular culture, and the enabling and distorted uses to which it is put, is a tour de force of cultural criticism. Her book is a real treasure. –Michael Eric Dyson, author of Holler If You Hear Me: Searching for Tupac Shakur
