Minstrel Man

robert brown black harry

(CBS, 3/2/1977, 120 mins). The era of black minstrels as captured in the lives of two brothers, one an extroverted song-and-dance man determined to break tradition and own his own minstrel troupe in a field dominated by black faced whites, the other an introverted and innovative composer struggling to break away from the stereotypes haunting black minstrel artists. Fred Karlin received an Emmy Award nomination for his musical score.
