    Wow, so well deserved. I can’t wait to see what comes to pass from that beautiful mind of his. We so desperately need fresh and interesting shows on our black networks. If I could make one suggestion, well maybe two suggestions: a good old fashioned but updated Western – maybe something about an all black town after the Civil War. But with black people who stick up for and protect each other. And a weekly R&B showcase with different singers every week and how about bringing back Cederic The Entertainer’s variety show. That was a great show that wasn’t really given the opportunity to shine.
