Black girls fight media images

Lewis Duiguid cites a recent study [Muhammad, G. E. & McArthur, S. A(2015). “Styled by their perceptions”: Adolescent girls’ interpretations of Black girlhood in the media. Multicultural Perspectives17(3), 1-8.] that “shows how stereotypical media images affect black girls’ sense of themselves and how society views them.”  He goes on to recommend that “[t]eachers should ask students to find, question, discuss, interpret and analyze media stereotypes on TV, radio, film, the internet and in music, magazines and newspapers.”  This assignment will be part of Not in Our Town’s racial literacy program that begins on Tuesday, October 18.
