Association of Black Women Historians on 'The Help'

'Despite efforts to market the book and the film as a progressive story of triumph over racial injustice- The Help distorts- ignores- and trivializes the experiences of black domestic workers. We are specifically concerned about the representations of black life and the lack of attention given to sexual harassment and civil rights activism.'
