Oprah Winfrey, recalls as a young lady, when ever she would see an African American on television she would call out to her neighbors and said, ‘Colored people are on TV!    The only black child she ever was likely to see telecast was not so complimentary roles like Buckwheat on the old ‘Little Rascals’ comedies, Oprah added. Things are different today, which was part of the reason for Wednesday’s gala held at New York’s Cipriani Wall Street by the Paley Center for Media, honoring African American Achievements in Television. Kerry Washington, Lee Daniels, Michael Strahan, and Shemar Moore and more on hand to introduce segments. The evening was divided into TV drama, sports, news and talk, music and comedy and got into the Paley Center’s archives for dozens of examples past and present.
