Lip by Tracey Moffatt( Visual )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is Hollywood's favorite role for black women: the maid. Sassy or sweet, snickeringly attentive or flippantly dismissive, the performers who play them steal every scene they are in, and Tracy Moffatt's entertaining video collage reveals the narrow margin Hollywood has allowed black actresses to shine in. But shine they do. Giving lip is proven an art form in these scenes from 1930's cinema to present-day movies featuring a remarkable roster of undervalued actresses and their more celebrated white costars."--Http://www.wmm.com
