In my head, the 90's gave birth to some of the BEST tv shows. One of them being Moesha, a teenage black girl growing up in the suburbs of LA. Moesha was played by singer the popular singer Brandy. The show started in 1996 and lasted until 2001. It followed Moesha from high school all the way to the college years.
The show featured many relatable characters like Niecy, Moesha's best friend, played by Shar Jackson, Dee, Moesha's step mother, played by Sheryl Lee Ralph, and many others. She also had some love interests; Q, played by Fredro Starr, Usher, and even her annoying neighbor Hakeem. In the later seasons, Ray J was bought onto the show to play the role of Dorian, the troubled cousin.
The successful show The Parkers is a spin-off from Moesha. It was based off Moesha's quirky friend Kim that was played by Countess Vaughn.
All in all it was a great show that focused on heavy issues while keeping a clean and tasteful representation of middle class black families, their children, and everyday issues. Do you remember the show? If so who was your favorite character and favorite episode?
