My Favorite Moments in Black Television

I was born in 1988. When video games and internet were barely a “thing”. I was a 90’s kid and you were the shit just for having basic cable! Fortunately for me, we had a few channels like ABC, UPN, BET, etc and back then tv brought the family in the same room even if for an hour or two. There were SO many shows that I remember were in heavy rotation at my house and listed below are just a few but my most memorable moments from those shows.

The first day of the New Year leads to a lot reflection and reminiscing and today I reminisced on old school tv, in the black household.
