Psychological anthropologist Douglas Raybeck was interviewed for a USA Today article (10/16/02) about 20th century Fox's decision to postpone release of "Phone Booth," a movie about a man trapped in a phone booth by a sniper.

Professor Tracy Denean Sharpley-Whiting
Sharpley-Whiting Authors Book
Professor of Africana Studies and French Tracy Denean Sharpley-Whiting is the author of Negritude Women, published by University of Minnesota Press. According to the publisher's Web site, "The Negritude movement, which signaled the awakening of a pan-African consciousness among black French intellectuals, has been understood almost exclusively in terms of the contributions of its male founders: Aimé Césaire, Léopold Sédar Senghor, and Léon G. Damas. This masculine genealogy has completely overshadowed the central role played by French-speaking black women in its creation and evolution. In Negritude Women, T. Denean Sharpley-Whiting offers a long-overdue corrective, revealing the contributions made by the women who were not merely integral to the success of the movement, but often in its vanguard."
