Volume 4, Issue 1 (1990) Trotter Institute Review

The mass media can be a positive or negative force in the struggle for racial progress. Unfortunately, the black community faces media that provide many negative influences. Consequently, there is a continuing need to address this issue.

In the articles in this issue of the Trotter Review we examine the current representation of blacks in the news media and representations of blacks in history through the entertainment media.

This special issue of the Trotter Review presents four papers given at a forum on "The Role of the Media in Racial Stereotyping" held by the Trotter Institute at UMass Boston on February 26, 1990.
