United States History: Moving On Up

Last week in U.S. History we discussed some gains of the Civil Rights Movement and listed one of them as More African Americans in the Media and Entertainment. The Jeffersons was one of the first shows on TV depicting African Americans in the upper-middle class. One thing I had also forgotten was that it was one of the first, if not THE first, show that had an interracial couple. Props to them. I'm Chinese American, my wife is Caucasian. If it wasn't for The Jeffersons maybe we wouldn't be married? Movin' on up! Read more about The Jeffersons here.
