Abstract: African Americans watch more television than any other race, with African American teens watching 7 hours and 55 minutes per day compared to 6 hours and 33 minutes viewed by total U.S. teens. It is hypothesized that exposure to television content may impact health behavior. The purpose of this review is to discuss what is known about the exposure of African American adolescents to sexual content presented in black-themed television programming.
