Pressestimmen"Each of these essays illustrates the impossibility of understanding television without understanding race." Living Color" subjects the analysis of television, like television itself, to critical interrogations that place racial difference at the center of television history, strategies of representation and narration, forms of address, and industrial production and circulation."--Herman Gray, author of "Watching Race: Television and the Struggle for Blackness"
