Historical Dictionaries of Literature and the Arts #7: Historical Dictionary of African American Television Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Amos 'n' Andy to The Jeffersons to Family Matters, this work covers it all. There are entries on all different genres and performers. Additionally, information can be found on general issues, ranging from African American audiences and stereotypes through the related networks and organizations. This book has hundreds of entries, from A to Z, in the dictionary and a list of acronyms with their corresponding definitions.

Book News Annotation:

This encyclopedic treatment includes thousands of facts and analyses on "events" that flowed past our eyes on television in the past 50 years. Here's where to find information on, for example, the number of Hooks family members who have appeared on television, interracial romances and marriages in the 1990s, television specials made by Diana Ross, and reality shows and African-Americans. Fearn-Banks (communications, U. of Washington) provides a valuable service with her comprehensive entries on people, shows, and issues across the era of TV, which has not-so-coincidentally spanned a good portion of the era of the fight for civil rights as well.
