- Black Picket Fences : Privilege and Peril Among the Black Middle Class
- by Dr. Mary Patillo-McCoy
Filmmakers, if you want a fresh take on the socio-economic situation
of African-Americans, please read "Black Picket Fences."
It will enliven you and stimulate your imagination as to how
we can continually dispel the many myths about African American
families and neighborhoods and possibly provide you with a
fresh idea for a documentary. The author, Dr. Mary Patillo-McCoy,
is a professor at Northwestern University and also a dear friend and
supporter of blackfilm.com. We hope that you will read this
important literary work.
