About this book

Oprah Winfrey has long promoted black issues by being involved as a producer or actor in the adaptation of works by African American writers for film. This volume evaluates Winfrey's involvement in the visual interpretation of African American literary texts using film, music, black masculinity, black feminist, and cultural theory.

Reviews

'This book steps boldly away from the many traditional biographies of Oprah to examine her role as a literary and cultural interpreter, and it would be a valuable addition to any library's collection of critical works on African American literature. Summing Up: Recommended. All readers.' - CHOICE
