James Earl Jones was on ATWT and GL?

It's a shame, too, GL didn't do more with Jim and Martha Frazier or bring them back years later, when P&G might have been less skittish about AA characters sharing screen-time with their Caucasian counterparts. The Fraziers would have been a solid (and much-needed) Black family with strong ties both to the community and to the show's history.

On ATWT he was Dr Jerry Turner.

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.
