TV series occupies a large portion of American's time. They have extensive experience with TV series before they are exposed to many socializing agents, such as schools, family, and other social interactions with the other. In these American TV series, African Americans are stereotyped. Given the central role of this medium in most American's lives, it is crucial to understand its potential effects on a variety of social, behavioral, and attitudinal outcomes in American society. The purpose of this book is to explore the stereotypes of African Americans in the American TV series. Motivating our research is the growing need to understand how these TV series influence American society. That American's attitudes toward TV series is more influenced by the past of the racial conflict between African Americans and White Americans, and it is more sophisticated than previously. The book is starting by giving an overview of TV series. In this first part, I introduced the reader to some characteristics that define TV series, then highlight the differences between TV series and other mediums and, in the end, show some of the social impacts of TV series. The second part is entirely about the depiction of African Americans in the American TV series. Moving within this central second part to the first section that examines the stereotypes in the American TV series, which affect the relationship between these African Americans and the rest of America, I tried to answer the 'how they are depicted?' question. The second section of the second main part is dedicated to exploring the social impacts of these stereotypes on African Americans within the American society. The last main part is about the African American TV series. In this part, I answered the question of what are the efforts of these African TV series to correct the distorted image of African Americans using two primary examples of TV series: Julia and the Cosby Show.
