Great 60s TV
6 March 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can not find a video of this amazing show which might now only exist in memory. It was one of the single best specials of the 60's featuring almost every notable black star of the era performing in music, dance & drama vignettes the poetry of Langston Hughes. Most memorable performances were the poems Harlem Sweeties and Weary Blues

The stars included Sammy Davis, jr., George Kirby, Sidney Poitier, singer Gloria Lynne, Langston Hughes (he wrote the script for the show!), Harry Belafonte, singer Joe Williams, Diahann Carroll, Nipsey Russell, Paula Kelly and, yes, Duke Ellington

If a tape does exist, it would be a present for the ages.
