Discriminations dans Being Mary Jane

Abstract : Black women have rarely been represented on screen in positive roles. They have in fact, been depicted through the same recurring negative stereotypes: the Mammy, the Jezebel and the Sapphire. These representations have often been accounted for by the fact that black people did not have much control over the images. However, once black men began to be on the side of film production, few changes were noticeable in black women representation. The article examines the changes, if any, that occurred when black women began to produce TV series.
