Race appeal : how candidates invoke race in U.S. political campaigns by Charlton D McIlwain( )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In our evolving American political culture, whites and blacks continue to respond very differently to race based messages and the candidates who use them. This work examines the use and influence such appeals have on voters in elections for federal office in which one candidate is a member of a minority group. The authors use various methods of analysis to examine candidates who play the race card in political advertisements. They offer an analysis of the construction of verbal and visual racial appeals and how the news media covers campaigns involving candidates of color. The book combines rigorous analyses with in-depth case studies, including an examination of race based appeals in the historic 2008 presidential election

Death in black and white : death, ritual and family ecology by Charlton D McIlwain( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Death in Black and White takes a behind-the-scenes look at contemporary funeral practices to discover what similarities and differences exist between African American and European American cultures' experience of dealing with death. The author charts the divergent origins of such rituals of mourning from pre-colonial Africa and Europe to the time in which these cultural traditions came into contact during the period of American slavery, and the degree of fusion and variation that persists up to the present day." "Based on a foundation of cultural theory and scholarship, the author explores a variety of issues related to race, culture and death ritual practices by immersing himself in the rich narratives and sources of information gleaned from his in-depth interviews with funeral directors, corporate funeral home representatives, clergy and individuals who have recently lost a loved one. Additionally, he has observed numerous funeral and burial services and cemetery landscapes, and has examined federal and state public policies surrounding burial and disposal, as well as other forms of death-related discourse. Ultimately, the book describes how death rituals both manifest and reinforce different cultural identities, and suggests that perhaps, it is through the experience of death that we might find the most enduring possibilities for promoting greater cultural understanding by maintaining rather than eliminating such differences."--Jacket

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"This article seeks to ascertain how implicit and explicit racial messages are constructed in televised political campaign advertisements. Utilizing a content analysis of 328 spots run in election contests between 1990 and 2000 where at least one candidate was African American, the authors provide results and analyses that demonstrate that both White and Black candidates are prone to utilizing racial messages. However, the authors show that a stark distinction exists between racial messages constructed by Whites and those by Black candidates"--Introduction

I am African: Branding Africa through the gaze of philanthropy by Rachelle Sussman Rumph( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This research is concerned with examining the semiotic meanings of the African continent within American culture by focusing primarily on the visual culture of humanitarian campaigns. It traces the development of a philanthropic gaze towards Africans that manifests today through consumer citizenship ideology and branding techniques. While early American philanthropists constructed a homogenized and chaotic Africa simultaneously as a "Dark Continent" and untapped "treasure house" of raw commodities, today a number of humanitarian campaigns aimed at the African continent operate through a kind of pop philanthropy aesthetic which attempts to garner donations through celebrity advertisements, hip commodities, and corporate sponsors. In this way, we are witnessing the celebrity re-colonization of the sign of Africa and the conflation of social awareness with consumption practices. This dissertation thus argues that the sign of Africa in the West functions as a humanitarian brand that transforms global suffering into pleasurable media texts and transforms notions of political engagement into depoliticized humanitarian gestures. As Africa is increasingly signaled through celebrity bodies and marketable commodities, Africans themselves virtually disappear as a referent within their own chain of signification. My project demonstrates how this kind of refusal or negation is indicative of a thoroughly postmodern, abstracted notion of the African continent that encourages problematic forms of philanthropic intervention
