Here's a free sample (PDF) of my book Hamburger² - a chapter on media phenom Amos 'n' Andy. I didn't realize what a startled reaction would result for including this, prompting me to go back and write an intro to the book (also included) where, among other things, I addressed why this series is important on many levels, including locally.
Amos 'n' Andy was on radio and or TV for 40+ years yet resonates as a somewhat positive but mostly negative drag on society. Any search for truth means happily embracing controversy, as I pointed out in the introduction, "it’s important to recognize the unfortunate media landscape that existed leading up to the Civil Rights era. We need to autopsy the injuries, pick at the sores, otherwise we’re left with modern day assumptions based entirely on images."
I would love any feedback you might offer. Here's the link to the Amos 'n Andy (PDF) article I spent the better part of a year researching... thank you!
