Reviews

"Those who buy this polemical book will find it leads to much discussion." - Choice
"In this study, Leonard examines a sampling of recent African American films in order to assess the extent to which they reflect racial progress or help perpetuate racial inequality and white privilege. Most of the films analyzed were written by, directed by, and starred black artists." - Reference & Research Book News/Art Book News Annual
