Amos 'N Andy - Anatomy Of A Controversy

Comedian George Kirby hosts this documentary that looks at the controversy surrounding the classic sitcom "Amos 'n Andy", a show that was the first--and for many years the only--all-black-cast series on TV. CBS pulled it off the air in 1953 due to pressure from African-American groups who felt it was stereotypical and demeaning to blacks (it was taken out of reruns in 1966 for the same reason). Included are interviews with cast members Ernestine Wade ("Sapphire") and Alvin Childress ("Amos") and actors Marla Gibbs and Redd Foxx. Whatever your feelings about the controversy, the series' casting was brilliant and it was undeniably funny, as shown by clips from several episodes and one entire, commercial-free episode.
