Black History Month: All My Children
In honor of black History month let's go through a soap a day and post some of their greatest clips featuring African Americans in their cast. To start is All My Children or All My Chil'ren's to those old black ladies in the south.
I have several to start this list off.
Darnell Williams and Debbie Morgan as Jesse and Angie Hubbard.
- Angie learns Jesse killed her father. This was her Emmy winning scene. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r75rHgkIWp0
- Angie learns baby Ellie died. I learned that the baby's name was after Jesse's mother. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdImemBj-9Q
The now rising star Michael B. Jordan got his feet wet as one half of the most realistic black teenage couple Reggie and Dani.
- With the gun he lifted from Jack's safe, Reggie is prepared to take revenge on Luis and get him to stop harassing him once and for all. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7asYIHU0CE
What is a soap without a hunk? Keith Hamilton Cobb joined AMC as the dreadlocked degenerate with a heart of gold, Noah Keefer. This was the last great era of AMC on TV for the show as a whole. Lorraine Broderick was there along with Agnes Nixon for a short period of time when this whole storyline took off.
- In this scene Julia is assaulted and Noah finds her. Powerful scenes. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hcfbA2_7zms&list=PL3F555-5555C019F&featu...
What are yours?
