Summary
"The 1960s may be over, but the Black Panthers--the ultimate symbol of black power, radical inspiration, and the excesses of the decade--live on. Books on the Panthers continue to be written, hip-hop artists continue to draw inspiration from them, and somany films are made about the Panthers that there is now an annual Black Panther film festival. Cultural historian Jane Rhodes examines the extraordinary staying power of the Panthers in the American imagination by probing their relationship to the media.Rhodes argues that once the media and pop culture latched onto the small, militant group, the Panthers became adept at exploiting and manipulating this coverage--through pamphlets, buttons, posters, ubiquitous press appearances, and photo ops--pioneeringa sophisticated version of mass media activism. Paradoxically, the news media participated in the government campaign to eradicate the Panthers while simultaneously elevating them to a celebrity status that remains long after their demise. This new edition will feature a new preface putting the Panthers relationship with the media in context with Black Lives Matter and recent activism against racial profiling and police brutality."--Provided by publisher
