Wish List Item - Overlooked Star Search

We would like to start a new section on information about overlooked Black entertainers. For example, we'd like to list brief biographies and "where are they now" type information about entertainers that we once followed and knew immediately, but have since seemed to disappear from the entertainment scene. Here are a few examples of the kinds of people we are looking for:



We want to host this site because, in general, these types of individuals are not mentioned in TV Guide® or People Magazine®, unless they do something infamous (see the cast of "Different Strokes"). Rather, we want to make sure that some of the lesser known stars whose light shined brightly then faded rapidly are not forgotten, and that they get some recognition without having to go to jail.

Unfortunately, we do not have the resources to search the ends of the earth to track down these people, so we are turning to you for assistance. If you know any press agents, managers, studio executives who can put us in touch with some of the entertainers listed above, please have them contact us at 800-484-7001, code 5417, by email at TheBlackMarket@GriffinDesignsInc.com (or use our form)or via regular mail at
