This week join us for a special conversation between Steve, Andrew, and Jonathan with Steve’s friend and colleague, Alvyn Haywood. Mr. Haywood, a professor of Communication at Mercer County Community College, brings his knowledge, gleaned from years as an educator both in the classroom and out in the community, to the topic of race on television during the 1980s. Steve moors the conversation around Sut Jhally’s early 1990s analysis of The Cosby Show, but the conversation also touches upon issues of class, cultural representation, and the medium’s tendency towards cultural amnesia at best, and invisibility at worst.
Then be sure to stop back two weeks from now on September 8, 2016 to listen to our next full length episode. You can leave a comment on this page and can always reach us via email at: email@example.com
