Dr. Angela Denise Mensah, nee Prater, Ph.D. is a communication professor, a published author and has spoken at national and international conferences. She is currently working on a book about the Fattening House: A Narrative Analysis of the Big, Black and Beautiful Body Subjectivity Constituted On Large African American Women.
Dr. Mensah is a feminist critical theorist who believes that oppression is oppression and no one group of people are affected by it more or less than another. Because oppression is a human experience, we all have be reminded when we are being oppressed or being the oppressor (all humans experience both roles whether we like to admit it or not).
Body image is one of the ways in which we still experience overt oppression.
Dr. Mensah holds a Bachelor of Science in Television Production from Ferris State University; a Masters of Arts in Communication from Western Michigan University and a Doctorate of Philosophy [School of Communication Studies with a cognate in Media] from Bowling Green State University 2008.
