I heard it through the grapevine : rumor in African-American culture by Patricia A Turner( )

15 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 2,503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whispers on the color line : rumor and race in America by Gary Alan Fine( Book )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 937 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Whispers on the Color Line focuses on a wide array of tales told in black and white communities across America. Topics run the gamut from alleged governmental conspiracies, possible food tampering, gang violence, and the sex lives of celebrities. Such beliefs travel by word of mouth, in print, and increasingly over the Internet. In many instances these rumors and legends reflect the tenaciousness of racial misunderstanding that continues to frustrate efforts to foster racial harmony, creating separate racialized pools of knowledge." "The authors have spent more than twenty years collecting and analyzing rumors and contemporary legends - from the ever-durable Kentucky Fried Rat cycle to persistent beliefs that athletic footwear manufacturers support white supremacist regimes. In this book, Fine and Turner explain how people find suspicious stories like these plausible. Telling them serves many purposes: to assuage anxieties, entertain friends, increase our sense of control - all without directly proclaiming our own attitudes. The authors consider how these tales reflect attitudes that blacks and whites have about each other and about the world they face. They brilliantly demonstrate how - by transforming unacceptable impulses into a narrative that is claimed to have actually happened - we are able to express the inexpressible."--Jacket
Ceramic uncles & celluloid mammies : Black images and their influence on culture by Patricia A Turner( Book )

8 editions published between 1994 and 2002 in English and held by 862 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study by an African-American studies scholar notes stereotyping objects in popular culture that depict blacks as servile, primitive, or simpleminded and explains how the subtle influences of such seemingly harmless images reinforce antiblack attitudes
Ethnic Notions by Marlon T Riggs( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Covering more than one hundred years of United States history, traces the evolution of Black American caricatures and stereotypes that have fueled anti-Black prejudice. Loyal Toms, carefree Sambos, faithful Mammies, grinning Coons, savage Brutes and wide-eyed Pickaninnies roll across the screen in cartoons, feature films, popular songs, advertisements, household artifacts, even children's rhymes. These caricatures permeated popular culture from the 1820s to the Civil Rights era and implanted themselves within the American psyche
Crafted lives : stories and studies of African American quilters by Patricia A Turner( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Crafted Lives: Stories and Studies of African American Quilters Patricia A. Turner explores the culture and recent history of African Americans through the creations and wisdom of nine quilters. Turner profiles quilters who exemplify the range of black women and men dedicated to the making of quilts, and she shows how their craftwork establishes order and meaning in their lives. The artisans comprise eight women and one man, ranging from teenagers to octogenarians, representing an array of education and income levels, and living across the United States, including Alaska"--Page 2 of cover

Color adjustment by Marlon T Riggs( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marlon Riggs brings his landmark study of prejudice and perception begun in Ethnic Notions into the Television Age and looks at over forty years of race relations through the lens of prime time entertainment with an analysis of the portrayal of African-Americans on American television from 1948-1988. He argues that earlier images were outright racist, and that later images have been overly biased towards prosperous blacks. This Peabody Award winning documentary revisits popular prime time television shows such as Beulah, The Nat King Cole Show, Julia, I Spy, Good Times and Roots. Actors Esther Rolle, Diahann Carroll and Tim Reid along with Hollywood producers Norman Lear, Steven Bochco and David Wolper reveal how bitter racial conflict was absorbed by the non-controversial format of the prime time series

Young v. old : generational combat in the 21st century by Susan A MacManus( )

3 editions published between 1996 and 2018 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arguing that an inter-generational war is brewing in the United States, this book paints a picture of the "ageing of America" and what it means for politics and policy questions, including social security, health care, crime, jobs, social welfare, defence and foreign affairs. Differences between older and younger citizens are examined in the light of voting and registration patterns, ideological and party preferences, and varieties of political activism. Contemporary media and new technologies are highlighted as sources of disparities and bridges between the generations - how they "watch politics", how they prefer to solve social problems, and how inter-generational understanding may be improved through communication and education
