COLOR ADJUSTMENT

"Is this positive?" is the recurring question in this fascinating survey of changing-and unchanging- images of blacks on television from the earliest days of the medium up to today. From the notorious "Amos and Andy" to the forgotten "East Side West Side" to the hit "Cosby Show," Marlon T. Riggs chronicles efforts, both noble and misguided, to depict African-Americans on the tube, an audience-Nat King Cole could be considered "threatening." Spiced with thoughtful quotes by James Baldwin and interviews with trailblazers like Norman Lear, Diahann Carroll and others, COLOR ADJUSTMENT is narrated by former Clevelander Ruby Dee.
