    Before Good Times, The Jeffersons, The Wire and The Corner, there was a daring experiment in television called "Bird of the Iron Feather" and it actually happened--- in 1970. Thats right, 40 years ago. We discuss its significance and the impact it had in this episode of the Professors.

    I've seen reruns Good Times and The Jefferson. I've seen 'The Corner' and heard about The Wire.


    Never heard of Bird of the Iron Feather. Never.

    Never seen reruns or syndication, there's not a clip on youtube.


    What kinda militant black power was yall preachin that's been silenced to such a degree? Nobody has even bought the rights to syndication?

    I'd like to see it but that's probably not possible. Nobody I know has ever heard of it.

    I have never heard of this either. However I don't think that it was erased by accident. I smell hidden racism.
