The Adventures of Amos and Andy (1951) - Television Broadcast History

Amos 'n' Andy is a situation comedy started in the 20s with a radio show and later adapted to a television series in 1951.  The two main characters Amos Jones and Andy Brown were constantly thinking up get rich schemes and their adventures were set in the black community.  Amos and Andy was canceled shortly after becoming a TV Show following protests of the show's portrayal of African Americans.  For more on Amos and Andy visit The Museum of Broadcast History online.
