Jannette Dates discusses Split Image: African Americans in the Mass Media.

Dean Dates discussed race relations in America and the coverage of racial issues in the media. She is co-editor of the book, Split Image: African Americans in the Media, published by Howard University Press. Dean Dates spearheaded the compilation of this book to provide a more balanced historical view of the African American contribution to media. She spoke of the dominant European culture which has established images and structures that impede the development and recognition of the subordinate African American culture, spanning from minstrel shows through today's hi-tech mass media. The editors chose to view the media as a split image, thus providing a "mechanism for grabbing hold of history and looking at it." The book points out the racial tug-of-war which makes young African Americans feel as if they do not have a stake in society. The other co-editor of the book is Dr. William Barlow, also of Howard University. (timspalding)… (more)
