Shaping Black America

Television has been a constant presence in Americans lives. With fast-moving and visually interesting, and entertaining style, it has commanded the attention of many Americans for most parts of their lives. According to a recent research, television competes favorably with other sources of information and family interaction. Also, the research indicates that television influences viewers’ attitudes and even beliefs about themselves, also about people from another social, ethnic, or cultural background (Fischer, 2006). Over the last century, especially from the1940’s all through top early millennium, commercial television has had a profound impact on the American society. It has influenced the way people think about important social issues including gender, class, and, more importantly, race. The African American TV portrayal in 1950s onward helped fight the cause of segregation and voting rights.
