Editorial Reviews

?An outstanding, comprehensive study about press coverage of black Americans during the 1960s and 1970s. In clear, polished writing style, Martindale analyzes past press coverage deficiencies, points out specific ways that coverage did or did not improve after the civil rights movement, and suggests ways by which journalists can improve coverage of black Americans. She draws upon a nine-page bibliography of major important conference reports, scholarly studies, journal articles, and her own empirical research. An extensive seven-page index provides easy accessibility to material and sources. Martindale formerly worked as a newspaper reporter and editor, has graduate degrees in journalism, and is published in Journalism Quarterly, College Media Review, and Educational Record. This book is of particular value to upper-level undergraduate students in journalism and communication, to journalism faculty, and to professional journalists. The book fills an important historial and research gap in the literature about journalistic practices when reporting minority issues and events.?-Choice
