First book to document Puerto Rican TV history reveals prolonged 
exclusion of blacks from screen

TUNING OUT BLACKNESS is a history of Puerto Rican television emphasizing 
the political and cultural dynamics that have shaped racial 
representations in the island's commercial media from the late 1940s to 
the 1990s.
The book's website can be found at  

"This book not only provides a cultural history of 'blackness' in Puerto 
Rican television, it also locates Puerto Rico as a critical blind spot 
in both Latin American and U.S. television studies, one that can offer 
new insights into the televisual representation of race, family, and 
nation."--Chon Noriega, author of /Shot in America: Television, the 
State, and the Rise of Chicano Cinema/
