Please join us "Scripts, Stereotypes, and the (Hyper) Sexualization of Black Women." Contemporary media are riddled with images that present gendered, racial stereotypes of Black women, such as the hypersexual Jezebel stereotype. Using quantitative and qualitative data, Morgan Jerald (Psychology) will explore how Black women negotiate cultural stereotypes that stigmatize their sexuality and the associated consequences for their sexual attitudes, sexual behavior, and experiences of sexualization.
