Womanist and Black Feminist Responses to Tyler Perry’s Productions (Black Religion/Womanist Thought/Social Justice)

By LeRhonda S. Manigault-Bryant (Editor), Tamura A. Lomax (Editor), Carol B. Duncan (Editor), 2014

“African American playwright, actor, television producer and filmmaker Tyler Perry is an American cultural phenomenon. Perry has made over half a billion dollars through the development of films, plays, and television series that center storylines about black women, black communities and black religion. The success of a Tyler Perry Production, coupled with Perry’s participation in a range of media and in multiple roles as creator and actor, position him as a significant site of black religious and cultural expression, and thus critical inquiry and reflection. Womanist and Black Feminist Responses to Tyler Perry’s Productions examines Perry’s works from interdisciplinary perspectives and provides a necessary response to Perry’s current prominence regarding black representation, black religion and black cultural production.”Screen shot 2014-08-27 at 5.08.48 PM
