According to the article, 'Secret Storm' was the 1st CBS soap to add black actors in response to an order from the network president following the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1968. The article states: "The adding of a black brought a lot of hate mail and the audience rating dipped for four days, then the audience came back to normal." Interestingly, everything I've read states that 'The Brighter Day' had the first black contract actor in its cast shortly before its cancellation in 1962 and 'The Guiding Light' had the Fraziers, a black medical couple, for a couple of years starting in 1966.

Thank you so much for the NBC shows here : SOMERSET, DAYS OF OUR LIVES, and ANOTHER WORLD. From the late 1960s until the Mid 1970s, these were the finest shows. I never cared for THE DOCTORS, but my mama and grandmother loved it in the miiddle of their NBC line up ~
