I was watching MeTV the other day, which is a fantastic station chock-full of old-time TV shows. In one sitting I saw episodes of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Rifleman and Star Trek (TOS). So it got me thinking... None of these shows has many (if any) black actors. And now I'm curious as to which TV show was the first to feature a predominantly black cast.
Anyone know? I'm thinking back to What's Happening, Good Times, The Jeffersons... But were there any before then?
