While many dismiss the concerns of women who lament poor representations of Black women in media, these images have real consequences. Professor Melissa Harris-Perry sits down with image activist Michaela Angela Davis to unpack the deleterious effects of misrepresentation.
Michaela Angela Davis, writer, image activist, and creator of MAD Free, a multi-platform community conversation project, speaks with Melissa Harris-Perry, professor, MSNBC political commentator, and author of the new book Sister Citizen: Shame, Stereotypes, and Black Women in America. The two will discuss the persistent and detrimental stereotypes that afflict black women in the political arena and contribute to policies allowing their unfair treatment.
