Summary

Using the cultural prism of race, this book critically examines the images of African Americans that exist in media of the twenty-first century. Further, the authors assess the ways in which media focused on gender, religion, and politics in framing perceptions of the President and First Lady of the United States during the Obama administration. The text draws on a wide range of textual and critical strategies to interpret, criticize, and deconstruct media artifacts.
