Inspired by 90’s Black TV

inspiredby_90's Black TV

Television, like most gen x-ers and millenials, was central to my formative years. During the 90’s there was a boom of shows centered around people of color which displayed positive representation of black culture. The Cosby Show and Family Matters showed positive families that people of any color could aspire to. A Different World to a look at college life from an HBCU standpoint, which I think both my sister and I imagined what our lives at FAMU and Tuskegee would be like. The list goes on; from Living Single, Moesha, Sister Sister, In Living Color, Martin, Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Hanging with Mister Cooper and more, these shows were well produced, well acted, and relatable across cultures but commonly gave insight to the dreams and struggles of black people all while embracing the color and vibrancy of the 90’s. So here’s a tribute to some of our favorite 90’s black tv show’s.

1. This Proust Geometrica Chair automatically makes me think of the funky opening sequence of In Living Color!

2. Who doesn’t want Steve Urkel on their wall? Embroidered watercolor by Loveiswildlife

3. If you don’t know the theme song by heart we can’t be friends. Fresh Prince of Bel Air acrylic necklace by Von trash

4. Zulu hats bring up memories of Queen Latifah and Living Single. U-N-I-T-Y!

5. Yes, the Hillman Bookstore exists in real life! We are all alums, so go ahead and rock a Hillman sweatshirt and Dwayne Wayne glasses!
