Since its invention, television has been one of the biggest influences on American culture. Through this medium, multiple visions and disparate voices have attempted to stake a place in viewer consumption. Yet even as this programming supposedly reflects characteristics of the general American populace, television-generated images are manipulated and contradictory, predicated by the various economic, political, and cultural forces placed upon it. In Shaded Lives, Beretta Smith-Shomade sets out to dissect images of the African American woman in television from the 1980s. She calls their depiction "binaristic," or split. African American women, although an essential part of television programming today, are still presented as distorted and deviant. By closely examining the television texts of African-American women in comedy, music video, television news and talk shows (Oprah Winfrey is highlighted), Smith-Shomade shows how these voices are represented, what forces may be at work in influencing these images, and what alternate ways of viewing might be available. Smith-Shomade offers critical examples of where the sexist and racist legacy of this country collide with the cultural strength of Black women in visual and real-lived culture. As the nation's climate of heightened racial divisiveness continues to relegate the representation of Black women to depravity and display, her study is not only useful, it is critical.

It's the July long weekend, and Ellen Brodie, with matchmaking on her mind, has invited an attractive distant cousin from out west for a visit. She has also included her son, Kendall, a recent graduate from law school. But Ellen's plans are doomed. Kendall brings along his devastatingly handsome best friend, Nick Donovan; Ellen's husband George decides to invite his two law partners and their wives; Bart Brodie, George's black sheep nephew, appears on the doorstep; an acquaintance of Ellen's whose house is being painted descends on them; and to cap it off, there's a body in the Japanese garden!It's time to bring in the law, in the form of Paul Manziuk and Jacquie Ryan.Manziuk is a born cop who started as a lowly cop on the beat and worked his way up to Inspector, which is as much responsibility as he wants. He cares, not only about people, but about stopping evil; and since a caring cop is an easy mark, he uses gruffness as a wall of protection. Manziuk has a long-suffering wife and three grown children.Jacqueline Ryan is Manziuk's counter-point. A vivacious 28-year-old who knows she's been promoted primarily because she's a black woman and, therefore, a double minority, she nevertheless grasps the opportunity with both hands. Ryan has a university degree in psychology and an advanced degree in criminology, with marks at the top of her class. She is determined to prove not only that she deserved the promotion but also that she can be as good as any cop in the department-including Manziuk.Shaded Light is a mystery written in the classic style with all the ingredients for a delightful mystery - intriguing characters, dry humor, a little romance, and lots of twist and turns.
