Collins published “Get Your Freak on: Sex, Babies, and Images of Black Femininity” in her book, Black Sexual Politics, in 2004. The media examples she uses to discuss “controlling images” of Black working-class and middle-class womanhood are drawn largely from the 1990s. Use a more recent example of commodified Black culture (music, TV, film, celebrity culture) to comment on one or more of the “controlling images” discussed by Collins.
