Allison Perlman, professor of History at NJIT, reframes the relationship between television and race relations in the United States by examining the role of media reform within civil rights activist campaigns. She analyzes how activists have challenged the organization and structure of the television industry, through license renewal challenges and fights to expand minority ownership of broadcasting stations, in order to alter the images and narratives broadcast on the small screen.
