  • Although scholars endorse Frank's Place as a model of televised black culture, that series lasted only one season—not enough to explore the varied characteristics of African Americans. Homicide: Life on the Street, largely ignored in the literature, survived seven seasons and gave black actors freedom to develop a richer portrait of differences that define African American men.
