I Attended the Paley Center Tribute to African-Americans in TV!

  • October 27, 2015

The Root sent me to The Paley Center for Media’s Hollywood Tribute to African-American Achievements in Television where more than 200 black actors, directors, showrunners, and entertainment-industry notables gathered at The Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills for a master class in black entertainment history.

The star-studded crowd—which spanned generations, from icons like Diahann Carroll and Quincy Jones to younger stars like Alfred Enoch (How to Get Away With Murder) and Yara Shahidi (Black-ish) were blessed with the opportunity to view hundreds of impressively curated excerpts from some of the most significant and memorable moments involving African Americans in television history, including an excerpt from the very first episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show, videos of Jackie Robinson and Muhammad Ali, and Soul Train footage.
