Speaker to address representation of African-Americans on reality TV

March 15, 2013

Student Advocates for Gender Equality at Loyola University New Orleans present the lecture “You Say No to Ratchet Culture, Reality TV Can’t: Representations of African-Americans on Reality Television.” Ratchet is a slang term used to describe inferior or superficial.

Presented by Treva Lindsey, Ph.D., assistant professor of women's and gender studies at University of Missouri, the free lecture takes place Thursday, March 21 at 7 p.m. in Nunemaker Auditorium. It is open to the public. Lindsey will examine reality TV and the intersection of race and gender shown on it.

Student Advocates for Gender Equality was founded with the purpose of breaking down gender stereotypes and social expectations. The group focuses on topics related to both men and women that actively try to raise awareness about the gender issue on campus, often working with the Women's Resource Center and other student organizations.
