The Adventures of Amos 'n' Andy: A Social History of an American Phenomenon


Write The First Customer Review

In 1940, 40 million Americans eagerly tuned in to Amos 'n' Andy, a radio seriel created by two white men about the adventures of two southern blacks making a new life in a northern city. A source of both pride and shame as the audiences responses changed over time, Amos 'n' Andy, nevertheless, remains the most popular radio show of all time. Ely follows the change from white actors to blacks on television, and discusses the impact on racial issues of the time. 16 pages of photographs.
