I seriously had no clue that ATWT had a african american MALE on their show in the late 60s..does anyone know something about his character?

I recall an interview or article about this topic with Irna saying she had to fight to have black characters on the show and that the network and or P&G onlty wanted them depicted in 'servant' roles eg waitress/janitor roles whereas Irna wanted to portray them as professionals.
