Title: Don't blame the grease, blame the TV: Soul food and the media
Author: White, Lauren
Abstract: The media has always portrayed soul food as unhealthy and indulgent, but essential to the African American community. While these stereotypes are still in place, a small group is on a mission to keep the flavor of the meals, but make it healthier. By examining the film "Soul Food", and selected episodes of "The Boondocks", and "Welcome to Sweetie Pie's", I plan to analyze the effect media representation has on the perception of soul food and how it is harmful to a movement aimed at decreasing diseases caused by an unhealthy diet.
