Amos 'n' Andy Anatomy of a Controversy: This documentary examines the history of _"Amos 'n' Andy Show, The" (1951), the first all-black-cast show on American television. The show only lasted a few years before the network succumbed to pressure from civil-rights groups, which said that it portrayed blacks in a negative light. The show was also pulled from re-runs in the mid-'60s for the same reason. Clips--and one entire episode--from the series are shown, as are interviews with several members of the original cast and several current black actors and comedians.
