WBEZ’s Richard Steele fills in for Jerome, as we continue our occasional series Images, Movies and Race.  Richard  talks with media analyst Brenda Verner. Brenda coined the term “Africana womanism,” an ideology grounded in African-American culture that focuses on the experiences, struggles, needs and desires of women in the African Diaspora. She'll talk about the media's depictions of black people and its historic impact on black culture, mores and relationships.
