PushBlack Asks: What is Your Favorite Black TV Series?




Hey, PushBlack fam! It’s back to school time, and as students start their semesters, we’re experiencing a lot of nostalgia here at PushBlack’s headquarters. One of our favorite memories from school was coming back to our dorm from a long day of class, sitting down on the couch, and watching black sitcoms.



Hey, PushBlack fam! It’s back to school time, and as students start their semesters, we’re experiencing a lot of nostalgia here at PushBlack’s headquarters. One of our favorite memories from school was coming back to our dorm from a long day of classes, sitting down on the couch, and watching black sitcoms.

Given that classes are starting and since we love black TV, we’re highlighting one of our favorite black TV shows, A Different World. The show accurately depicts the HBCU college experience and also tackles important social, political, and economic issues.

Finding a job for tuition, getting bad grades, learning that the world isn’t fair — A Different World perfectly portrayed the not so glamorous aspects of college life.

It’s been 22 years since one of the most influential shows of our generation aired its last episode. From inspiring high schoolers to enroll in college to showing how ridiculous college can get, A Different World remains as relevant as ever. Read journalist Hope Clover’s ode to this groundbreaking series.
