More actors of color are being included in American programming, however, determining which groups are represented becomes a challenge for people who want to see themselves. Because of casting directors' efforts to use racial ambiguity in their selection of actors, some viewers still believe they cannot see themselves. This panel will examine the types of programs in which people of color are or are not seen and why we may appear to be "missing in action". Moderator: Coreen Jackson, Tennessee State University
Panelists: Cindie Yanow, Southeast Missouri State University
Respondent: Maria Williams-Hawkins, Ball State University
