Alice mentions Amos 'n' Andy. Amos 'n' Andy was a radio and television sitcom set in Harlem's black community. The radio show ran from the 1920s through the 1950s with Freeman Gosden and Charles Correll, who played a number of different characters, including the titular Amos Jones (Gosdon) and Andrew Hogg Brown (Correll). When the show moved to television, black actors took over the majority of the roles. The show ran as a nightly radio serial (1928-43), as a weekly situation comedy (1943-55), and as a nightly disc-jockey program (1954-60). A television adaptation ran on CBS (1951-53) and continued in syndicated reruns (1954-66). It would not be shown to a nationwide audience again until 2012. See more
