Still Processing is where they try to understand the pleasures and pathologies of America in 2018.</p>

Title
We Have a Theory About Oprah
Description

The wait is finally over - we’re back for Season 3! This week, we look at the movie “Proud Mary” starring Taraji P. Henson as a jumping off point for the cultural moment that black women are having right now in pop culture. We run through a brief history of black women in movies and television and consider those who built the foundation for this moment. From Hattie McDaniel to Dorothy Dandridge to Whoopi Goldberg to Halle Berry, we consider what all of this means for how we discuss Oprah’s (possible) presidential run.


Discussed This Week:


“She’s Gotta Have It” (Netflix)


“The Case for the Subway" (Jonathan Mahler, New York Times Magazine)


Black Women Voters of Alabama


“Picturing Us: African American Identity in Photography” (Deb Willis)


Diahann Carroll (in "Julia")


Pam Grier (in "Coffy")


Oprah’s SNL Cold Open


“The Spector of Oprah Winfrey: Critical Black Female Spectorship“ (Terisha L. Stanley, 2007)
