Leola Althea Johnson: “Honey Boo Boo As a Political Figure: A Convergence of News and Entertainment

“I am a single parent of two adult boys, which is my favorite identity. My sons, who are both in their twenties, are wonderful, ethical young men. I’m also an academic  and a writer. Most recently, I have been writing about photographic representations of black bodies in popular culture.

Her scholarship focuses on the media representations of African Americans in news and entertainment, especially sports and music, as well as on women and African Americans who work in media industries.   She is an associate professor of Media and Popular Culture at Macalester College.

Alley Communications is delighted that she will join us in what promises to be a provocative and dynamic evening including her presentation and many talented local performers.
