First black president starring Richard Pryor

I was listening to the TJMS (Tom Joyner Morning Show) this morning and they played the following recording on the show.  You know I was heading over to YouTube when I got home 😉

The video is from The Richard Pryor Show which only aired four episodes back in 1977 on NBC.  One of the biggest mistakes was airing this show in the family hour at 8:00pm opposite Laverne & Shirley.  What was NBC thinking?  And let’s face it, America just wasn’t ready for this type of show back in the day.

You can check out the dvd for The Richard Pryor Show Volumes 1 & 2 at Amazon.com.
