Summary
This study of prejudice and perception traces over forty years of race relations in America through the lens of prime time TV entertainment. Black actors Esther Rolle, Diahann Carroll, Denise Nicholas, and Tim Reid and Hollywood producers Norman Lear, Steve Bochco and David Wolper reveal the behind-the-scenes story of how prime time was "integrated." Revisiting such popular hits as Amos and Andy, Beulah, The Nat King Cole Show, Julia, I Spy, Good Times and Roots, viewers see how bitter racial conflict was absorbed into the non-controversial formats of the prime time series
