|Plot||This documentary examines the history of _"The Amos 'n Andy Show" (1951)_ (qv), the first all-black-cast show on American television. The show only lasted a few years before the network that showed it succumbed to pressure from civil-rights groups, which claimed 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 prominent modern-day black actors and comedians.... search for Amos 'n' Andy: Anatomy of a Controversy on IMDb|
