This volume profiles approximately 300 African American (and a few white) performers, organizations and series broadcast during radio's ""Golden Age,"" an era covering the years 1921 through 1955. Many of these personalities and programs are chronicled in more depth than in any previous publication, while several are covered here for the first time. The entries reveal the rich diversity in programming created by black talent and intended for black audiences during a time which has generally been portrayed as being nearly devoid of a black presence. Two appendices provide a week-by-week account of the pioneering African-American radio series The Negro Achievement Hour and The Negro Art Group Hour, both of which debuted in 1928. A third appendix places the profiled individuals and series in an easy-to-read chronological format.
