The African American culture is one of three topics that students have really struggled with in prior courses. The mistakes of prior students include: basing the paper off their experiences and/or opinions; providing an incomplete cultural identity; providing a description of the cultural identity NOT based on scholarly sources; incomplete explanation of stereotypes/portrayals in the US media; missing evaluation of the impact of the media on perception and interaction with this culture; and no scholarly sources cited.
If you are going to focus on this culture then I would strongly advise that you narrow your focus to a particular segment or geographical location of the African American culture. Additionally ensure to restrict your paper to the elements of the prompt.
Please keep in mind that this paper requires:
A description of the identity of one specific cultural group and how that culture’s identity is reflected in its communication patterns, values, language, architecture, pastimes, art, music, relational roles, societal systems, behaviors, etc. This should be based on scholarly references.
Compare how your selected cultural group is portrayed in the US media and contrast that to how they are in real life. THIS SECTION REQUIRES YOU TO DISCUSS STEREOTYPES OF YOUR SPECIFIC CULTURE IN THE US MEDIA. In order to ensure that this is clearly demonstrated, I would highly encourage you to include examples. For the compare and contrast you must list specific examples in the US media to include movies, books, television shows, etc. to receive full credit. You must also state how your culture actually differs from its portrayal in the US media. This should be based on scholarly references.
Evaluate how the media affects communication between your selected culture and other cultures. The two major elements to address in this section are perception and interaction. In this section you want to discuss the stereotypes that the media perpetuates to its viewers and how those stereotypes affects how other people perceive and interact with your selected culture. This should be based on scholarly references.
