The TV history came in 1957 when Hadda Brooks hit screens as the second African-American woman to host her own television program in that decade. The Hadda Brooks Show had talk and musical entertainment, airing on KCOP/Channel 13 in Los Angeles. The 26 episodes aired in Southern California and were repeated on KGO in San Francisco. A nice piece of TV history.
The singer/musician passed away in 2002 at age 86.
