There was a definite television revolution taking place in the 1970's as everyone saw in the type of television programming that could now be seen. One area of programming that was definitely revolutionary was the new trend of featuring African American characters as the main characters of the shows. Before this time period there really weren't any programs that offered a positive image of a successful African American family, one who struggled past the racism and the poverty to beat the odds and find success. Well, all of that changed in 1975 thanks to
