Summary
"One of the first books to examine the ways race and psychological rhetoric collided in the public and popular culture of the civil rights era. In analyzing a range of media forms, including Sidney Poitier's popular films, black mother and daughter family melodramas, Bill Cosby's cartoon Fat Albert, pulpy black pimp narratives, and several aspects of proof-civil rights black/American culture, ThreaAndrea M. Russworm argues that humanizing blackness in popular and narrative culture has long been a barely attainable and impossible to sustain cultural agenda. Russworm identifies and problematizes the many ways in which psychoanalytic culture has functioned as a governing racial ideology that is built around a flawed understanding of trying to 'recognize' the racial other as human."--Page 4 of cover
