On tonights episode of The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour on Nov. 10th of 1968, the musical guest was Jefferson Airplane. They played the song “Crown of Creation.” The bands lead singer, Grace Slick sang the song with ‘blackface’ makeup on. At the end of the song Grace gave the “black power salute”, which was made infamous when a black athlete at that year’s Olympics had raised his fist instead of putting his hand over his heart during the US National Anthem.
Anybody remember watching the show that night? If you do, how did you feel about it?
Here is the video of it, 49 years ago.
