Bobo demonstrates that African-American women, as a separate interpretive community, view cultural products in a unique way. In interviews with black women, she examines their specific responses as spectators and consumers of films and novels, including Waiting to Exhale, The Color Purple, and Daughters of the Dust.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"A pathbreaking study of African-American women's responses to literature and film... Bobo focuses on a small group of middle-class African-American women as they process literature (by Terry McMillan, Alice Walker) that addresses their own experiences... This work should command the attention of all scholars of American popular culture." -- "Choice"
