Reviews

"Washington Post pop culture writer Bethonie Butler is less interested in narrating how Black TV changed America (which it did) than in telling stories that 'center Black people and their experiences, without tethering those experiences to the white people in their midst.'"--Mark Anthony Neal, The Washington Post
"Butler looks back on television shows hosted by or starring Black entertainers in this amply detailed book...readers who fondly remember watching programs such as In Living Color and Everybody Hates Chris will especially enjoy this."--Anjelica Rufus-Barnes, Library Journal
"An intelligent, valuable resource...thoughtful book looks at how Black people have been portrayed on the small screen and how those depictions have both changed with and influenced the times."--Chris Rutledge, The Washington Independent Review of Books
