The Neo-Mammy??

I came across this article which I found interesting claiming that Hollywood is slowing reconstructing the archetype of the Mammy… but its a new age Mammy. Its a short article and breaks down all the mother figures in The Secret Life of Bees labeling each figure into as a different type of mammy. I disagree with her that hollywood is recontructing the mammy, but Its definitly interesting to think and debate about.

Here’s the article http://www.postbourgie.com/2009/01/08/the-neo-mammy/. If anyones interested.
