Health, Style Watch, Teen Vogue, Vanidades, Vogue, or another similar fashion/beauty-related magazine
(Note – you may use actual hard copies of the magazines and can find them in grocery stores, libraries, and bookstores; or, you may google these magazines and explore their websites).

Then, respond to the following:

1. Briefly state which two magazines you explored, and the main target audiences of each.

2. In examining images, advertisements, and articles in each magazine, discuss what – if any – racial or ethnic stereotypes were present. Were there examples of cultural racism in the magazines?

What would you estimate to be the racial and ethnic makeup shown – that is, what percentage of people appear to be White,
Black, Hispanic, Asian, Middle Eastern, and so on?

Finally, do you feel that magazines should be more integrated, or is there a use in magazines remaining segregated – that is, having separate magazines for different ethnic and racial groups? Be sure to include and apply what you learned from the course material.

What did segregation mean?
Segregation is the practice of requiring separate housing, education and other services for people of color. Segregation was made law several times in 18th and 19th-century America as some believed that black and white people were incapable of coexisting.

Who started segregation?
South, Jim Crow laws and legal racial segregation in public facilities existed from the late 19th century into the 1950s. The civil rights movement was initiated by Southern blacks in the 1950s and ’60s to break the prevailing pattern of segregation.
