The show Julia was ground breaking in that it was one of the first to feature an African actor, actually I Spy featured Bill Cosby in the early 60s, but Julia was still one of the first to have an African star. This was a bold move for the networks in their attempt to show that blacks are no different than whites for the most part, and gradually more and more roles became available to black actors. I was just a child when the series debut, so I never became a big fan, however my older siblings watched the show and gave me their opinions.
