20 Black TV Shows You Watched If You’re a ’70s or ’80s Baby

sistersisterSister, Sister

Before Tia and Tamera became reality TV stars, they were best known for the hit show “Sister Sister.”

The premise of the show was that the girls, played by Tia Landry and Tamera Campbell, were separated and adopted at birth. One was adopted by a single mother, while the other was adopted by a single father. The two accidentally found each other 14 years later and reunited.

FAMILY MATTERSFamily Matters

“Family Matters” focused on Harriet Winslow and her family. Carl Winslow, her husband, was a dutiful cop, and a gruff and lovable father to three kids: Eddie Winslow, the rebel son; Laura Winslow, the smart-aleck daughter; and cute little Judy Winslow. They opened their home to Harriet’s sister, Rachel Crawford and her baby son, Richie. And of course there was Steve Urkel, the inventive nerd, who barged into their home and eventually, into their hearts. Steve had a killer crush on Laura, but she would never give him the time of day. The character Steve Urkel was intended to have a one-shot appearance, but his popularity with fans won him the No.1 spot as America’s favorite nerd.

  1. What about Julia, The Flip Wilson Show, Baby I'm Back, and That's My Mama?

  2. The family in Good Times was based in Chicago, and they never ran a business.

    Out of all the shows profiled, they are all comedies. We need to change this pattern to show we are a more diverse people.

  5. Nothing wrong with a lil laughter as long as its balanced with something relevant and educational.All of the shows always had a moral or lesson.We try to be so anti laughter…truth is ….laughter heals….laughter allows you to cope and laughter helps you live longer… Besides coming home from a hard days work it was good to sit around the tv with your family and laugh a little……this was right before the glorifying of gang life started flooding our brains in music videos and music.

    Black Butterflies I agree with what you are saying totally. I just feel that out of these shows, why is there no drama. If this were a list of white shows, you would see both comedies and dramas. Also, why must we always rely on comedies to get our points across?

    The picture is of the characters from "Good Times" but the narrative is about "Sanford and Son." (Page 9).
