Locating Tyler Perry's Films in the Sociohistorical Context of "Race" Movies

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper examines historical eras in “race films”, then places Tyler Perry’s filmic representations of the Black women, gender and the Black family within its sociohistorical context.

It asks: What is the role of extended family, religiosity, constructions of black masculinity and femininity, etc., in constructing images of African American families and relationships between black men and women? How is social class constructed in these films, and how is class conflict represented? To what extent do these constructions reflect reality? Perhaps most importantly, why do Perry’s reconstructions of Black families/relationships have such widespread appeal to African American audiences?
