Erica Chito Childs

Fade to Black and White: Interracial Images in Popular Culture
(Rowman & Littlefield, 2009)

bookcoverFollowing on her earlier ground-breaking study of the social worlds of interracial couples, Erica Chito Childs considers the larger context of social messages, conveyed by the media, which inform how we think about love and interracial relationships. Examining a range of media—from movies to music to the web—Fade to Black and White offers an informative and provocative account of how the perception of interracial sexuality as “deviant” has been transformed in the course of the twentieth century and how race relations are understood today. Erica Chito Childs (Hunter College) is associate professor of sociology at the Graduate Center.
