A somewhat bittersweet milestone. This day in 1949 marked the beginning of the network television soap opera as Irna Phillips' daytime drama These Are My Children debuted on Chicago's NBC station.

If you've ever seen this movie, which starred Sidney Poitier, the story of, E.R. Braithwaite, you know it's the story of the first Black teacher in all of London (I believe he was the first). Mr. Braithwaite, a West Indian immigrant from what was then known as British Guyana was portrayed by Bahamian born actor Sidney Poitier. Mr. Braithwaite has died at the age of 104. R.I.P. I've watched that film so many times!
