1 Review
Examining the growth of the black media in Britain from 1901 to today, this book traces the struggles and successes of the owners and controllers of the major black media, their history and current status. The book considers the portrayal in the mainstream media of black people and finds a pattern of gross omission and stereotypical racist distortion. It links this misrepresentation to the growth of separate media for a population which, like all members of modern society, relies on the media for information and entertainment. It relates how, despite legislation, black people still do not have equality of opportunity and that this is true, too in the case of employment in the mainstream media industry - particularly at senior level.
