Is it this show I'm thinking of?


It seems to me I remember a poem piece being recited on this show. I could have sworn it was done by the actress Esther Rolle, but I can't find anything on her IMDb page showing she was ever a part of any Reading Rainbow episode. The poem was basically about racial tolerance and I remember some of the lines being something to the effect of stop looking to see how much of a certain color makes up a person, and it ended with the line stop looking, start loving. Damn, it's driving me nuts :) Does this ring a bell with anyone?

I think I know what you are talking about.

It is from the episode, AURTHUR'S EYES.

Thanks so much! I haven't seen this since about the mid eighties and it's one of those things that has stayed with me ever since. Maya Angelou. Thought that might have been it too, but wasn't sure ;)
