When the hit radio show moved to TV in 1951, it was heavily criticized by
the NAACP for its demeaning portrayal of blacks.
The organization urged CBS to cancel the show, but it ran until 1953, and
re-runs aired well into the 60’s.
Prominent figures, including Cosby, continued to speak out.
While Cosby didn’t buy the show to make it disappear, his clout, popularity,
and public opposition led CBS to permanently pull the show from syndication
in 1966.

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
