You Will Not See Amos 'n' Andy on Cable or Television
Amos 'n' Andy began on the radio in 1928. Two white actors wrote and performed their roles as black farmers who move to Chicago. The radio success led to a feature film, with the white radio stars donning black face.
The series has been no stranger to controversy! In 1930, 675,000 signatures were collected in a petition to get it off the air. But the show was more popular with black audiences than white audiences which extended to its eventual television debut and success.
Fans of the show from Jesse Jackson to Redd Foxx have crossed swords with Bill Cosby, who reportedly led the charge to get Amos ‘n' Andy removed from television. The fact that Amos ‘n' Andy is still popular although it has not been on television since 1966 is a testament to its popularity and comedic genius.
