Image is everything. Perception is reality. These statements have rung true for black folks down through the years. The media and television outlets have been allowed to mold and shape the public perception of black people since its inception. From the days of the minstrel show, to the media coverage of the crack cocaine explosion in the 1980’s, down to the racially coded images and talk on Fox News. How can we reclaim and create a positive view of ourselves in the media? Solution based radio!
