King Kong to Black-ish: 90 Years of Black Stereotypes

54 minutes

The ETT Team has a lively inter-generational discussion on the existence and effects of Black stereotyping in the media. Whew! From King Kong through YouTube, we discuss the differing social and emotional effects of early and modern Black stereotypes. Everything was on the table for discussion. The generational views, opinions, and approaches differed and sometimes clashed. All opinions were valid. All opinions were respected. This was one of the most lively discussions about an issue upon which everyone agreed: Black stereotypes are dangerous to Black people--and must be stopped NOW.
