Editorial Reviews:

Synopsis: Passionately written and supported with detailed evidence, From Mammy to Miss America and Beyond discusses how stereotypes of Black women, generated by American society's most powerful institutions, have contributed to their continuing oppression. K. Sue Jewell examines how the media and government policy makers generated and promoted Mammy and Aunt Jemima images of African-American women. She also focuses on the resurgence of the ``bad black girl image'' in the 1970's, culminating in the controversy surrounding the first African-American Miss America, Vanessa Williams.
