Abstract:

In the arena of the mass media, black female music artists are important figures in the struggle to fight stereotypical images and representations, especially since this is a site where black women have been highly visible in both dominant and black popular culture. With this in mind, I ask the following questions: How do Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliott and Kimberly “Lil' Kim” Jones present their bodies/selves in the public realm as constructions of black womanhood? Do either of them break or transform existing stereotypes of black women? Do they create new options for black representation? And if so, how?
