Before his fame in film and television, Gene worked at vaudeville where he sang and danced on stage. If fact he was billed as "Hollywood's most famous colored kid star". He worked with Hal Roach for "Our Gang" as Farina's older brother, Pineapple.
He also appeared as Diahann Carroll's Uncle Lou on TV's "Julia" and Redd Foxx's friend on "Sanford and Son". wikipedia  Jackson experienced early Hollywood's stereotype casting and pay differentials for minorities firsthand. For "Our Gang," he earned a top of $55 a week compared with the white children's $75, he told The Times in 1992. And, he added, "black kids had to look the part. They would put stuff on my hair to make it look kinkier."~nytimes
