  1. I just saw a good documentary on what was the first Black directed and produced show on US television that was made in NYC. I was amazed to find out that, IMHO. the greatest gospel singer of all time, Marion Williams, was a guest on the show in 1968. A young Stevie Wonder with Wonderlove was featured a few times on the show, including one episode where he just kept playing, even though he went way over his allotted time, and they had to keep getting new cans of tape at the time to capture his entire performance. Billy Taylor, Roland Kirk, and many other jazz musicians of the time were also feattured on the show, along with many Black poets. The clips on the show were pretty short, but here's an idea of who appeared during the show's five year run: Ellis Haizlip ... Self - Host / ... 12 episodes, 1968-1973 Jerry Butler ...
