The Madea Factory

The Madea Factory will address many topics related to African American stereotypes and images which are portrayed in the movie industry, largely by the most recognizable and profitable black filmmaker of all time, Tyler Perry. Since African Americans began performing and entertaining nationally over one hundred years ago, there has been a division between the mainstream viewing public and the African American audience, from which these mannerisms and behaviors are allegedly derived from. This book provides clarity to why the gap continues to exist today and how it can best be overcome.

Must Read!

Reading this book opened my eyes to the history, stereotypes, similarities and contrasts of today's version of the cross dressing black man. I was unaware of the concept of black men dressing as women from the early 1900s. This book provides the alternate angle of the price of calling something comedy. While most black people love, adore, or praise Tyler Perry they are not aware of the content that his Madea character evokes to its audience, especially young boys. If you want a realistic and factual based eye opener about the truth behind Madea and the influences of homosexuality, minstrel shows, religion, and other forms of coonery, the Madea Factory is the book you should read.
