Black People and the Media

£4.99

Product description

Subtitled 'equality in employment and training: policies and practice', this book was the first major work pulling together the varying and sometimes irreconcilable policy positions of television and radio on the employment of black people, ethnic minorities, women and disadvantaged groups in Britain, the Commonwealth and the United States. It is the product of a one-day seminar entitled 'Employment Prospects for Black People in the Media' held at the Civic Centre, London Borough of Lewisham, on May 13, 1988. Editor Joe Harte worked in the Affirmative Action Unit at Lewisham Town Hall and was also co-chair of Black Rights (UK) at the time of writing. Chapters include Equal Opportunities at the BBC, Racism in Broadcasting, and Stereotypes and Black Employment. Useful as a historic document for media students and a measure of how the situation has changed, or not, in the last 30 years.

The condition of the book is used: good. Some marking and creasing to covers but clean throughout.
