Double Negative: The Black Image and Popular Culture

En curso

Lugar: Sala de proyección Bartos

Parte de Cambiar la imagen, patrocinado por Time Warner Inc.

A presentation by Racquel J. Gates, followed by a book signing 


From the antics of Flavor Flav on Flavor of Love to the brazen behavior of the women on Love & Hip Hop, so-called negative images of African Americans are a recurrent mainstay of contemporary American media representations. In Double Negative: The Black Image and Popular Culture (2018, Duke Univ. Press), Racquel J. Gates examines the generative potential of such images, showing how some of the most disreputable representations of black people in popular media can strategically pose questions about blackness, black culture, and American society in ways that more respectable ones cannot.

Gates will present a film talk accompanied by film/TV clips exploring the ideas in her book. Rather than falling back on claims that negative portrayals hinder black progress, Gates will explore how reality shows such as Basketball Wives, comedians like Katt Williams, and movies like Viniendo a America play on “negative” images to take up questions of assimilation and upward mobility, provide a respite from the demands of respectability, and explore subversive ideas. Program duration approximately 90 mins.

A book signing for Double Negative: The Black Image and Popular Culture will follow the screening and talk.
