Episode of the classic 50's TV program "The Goldbergs", taken from then final season. 'Member of the Jury'

Black entertainers were seldom booked west of Western Avenue in those days, and Gaillard's appearances at Berg's were, in a very real sense, where Hollywood's racial integration began.
Rita Lakin's new musical, "Saturday Night at Grossinger's," fetes the businesswoman behind the food and the entertainment, Jennie Grossinger (1882-1972).
