The Black and White Media Book by John Twitchin


The Black and White Media Book by John Twitchin

There is no doubt that television acts as a powerful image-maker of Black people both in Britain and overseas - an image that is generally though often subtly, disparaging. This book offers a comprehensive analysis of media representation of black people together with detailed examples of racial bias, and practical teaching strategies and references to material for teachers - and their trainers - for examining this bias in classrooms, staff rooms and colleges.
