Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Amanda Randolph (September 2, 1896 - August 24, 1967) was an American actress and singer. She was a native of Louisville, Kentucky, and was the older sister of actress Lillian Randolph. She was the first African-American performer to star in a regularly scheduled network television show, appearing in DuMont's The Laytons. This short-lived program was on the air two months in 1948. The daughter of a Methodist minister and a teacher, she spent some early years in Cleveland, Ohio, where at age 14, she was earning extra money playing piano and organ. Steve Gibson, brother of Amanda and Lillian and known for his Rhythm and Blues group, the Five Red Caps, is another talented family member.show more
