An insightful documentary that is hindered by its fire and brimstone rhetoric

The documentary provides the spectator with an insightful look at the representation of African Americans in TV. However, the message is a bit convoluted, at times it seems like the doc wants to prove that there is progress in African American representation. But, the excess usage of over-sentimental and soap opera like music and the random juxtaposition of the apathy of Americans to the civil rights movement hinders such message in that it seems as if it is the end of the world. That the progress since after the civil war is not satisfying enough for the African American community. In the end, messages of real progress is lost in its fire and brimstone rhetoric. By the end of the doc, the audience is left with the feeling of the UN-appreciation of African Americans towards progress of their representation in television.

This documentary about the evolution of Black representation on American TV until the 1990s is screaming for a sequel that reaches to the present, but what we have here is quite good and informative; even when some of the reflexions may easily be exported to any other category of representation on Prime-Time television at the time.
