Product description


Black Women’s Portrayals on Reality Television: The New Sapphire presents a collection of scholarship that convincingly asserts that we are not yet done with questions of representation and stereotype as it pertains to the imagistic treatment of Black women. Reading across the often complex and controversial terrain of reality television, the authors display interpretive prowess as they take on issues such as resurrection of traditional stereotypes, potency of 'ratchetness,' and respectability policing dilemmas. The representational plight of Black women is ably balanced here with attention to themes of transformation, agency, and possibility. -- Robin R. Means Coleman, University of Michigan

This book is an engaging discussion of reality television. It is a pleasure to observe how young communication scholars have come together to critically analyze Black women's various roles in reality television. What is especially appealing is the variety of topics covered and the direction it has given us: “future research in this area must move toward examining viewers' responses to the identified portrayals of Black women.” This impressive collection is likely to revive interest in researching the impact of portrayals of Blacks and Black women in the media. Interdisciplinary in nature, the analysis is sure to become a resource for scholars, researchers, and graduate students in media studies, communications, sociology, and women's studies. I look forward to assigning Black Women’s Portrayals on Reality Television as required reading in my African American Issues in Communication course. -- Carolyn Stroman, Howard University
