Additional Information

“The Help” sold over three million copies and spent more than 100 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list after its debut in 2009 followed by a 2011 release of the highly anticipated film. Intrigued by its lasting popularity, Dr. Griffin draws upon critical race theory to trouble how the film depicts: race and racism, racial inequality, and interracial coalitions among women.
Rachel Alicia Griffin, Ph.D. is an assistant professor in the Department of Communication Studies at Southern Illinois University. As a critical intercultural scholar, her research interests span black feminist thought, critical race theory, popular culture, gender violence, and sport.
