About this Item

Close to Nf. in a fine dj. (Traces of discoloration & light rubbing to bottom edges of boards) History of the long running radio & later television program. The book was mildly suppressed at time of publication owing largely to the prevailing attitude that the characters were blatantly racist. This perception seems to have mellowed somewhat in the intervening years. Bookseller Inventory # 4017

About this title

Synopsis:

Based on extensive interviews, this account of the Amos 'n' Andy show includes facts, folklore, and photographs from the popular yet controversial comedy series

From Library Journal:

The Amos 'n' Andy show was the most successful and most controversial radio and TV program ever produced about black people. From its inception in 1928 when two white men, Freeman Gosden and Charles Correll wrote, produced, and played the main characters, the program was attacked as being demeaning to blacks in characterizing them as lazy, shiftless, and objects of humorous scorn. The authors of this study are ambivalent in much of their commentary, pointing out that the long-running series was extraordinarily popular among all races well into the 1950s. At that point new racial attitudes spelled the end of Amos 'n' Andy as less stereotyped and more sophisticated shows such as I Spy and The Bill Cosby Show portrayed blacks more realistically. A good choice for public libraries. Samuel Simons, Memorial Hall Lib., Andover, Mass.
