Very Good Depiction of Life at a Black College
When the show first began, it appeared to focus on appealing to a broad audience. However, having attended a Black College, I can attest that there are not that many White students there, which made the initial settings unrealistic. I also felt that the portrayal of Denise Huxtable was inconsistent with her character from The Cosby Show. There she was a good student and was noted as considering multiple colleges including some Ivy Leagues. How do you go from an Ivy League contender to academic probation? Beats me! In spite of that, the show was always very timely and approached many real issues such as racism, AIDS, domestic violence, constitutional rights, war, and Black History. So regardless to what awards the show or its stars may or may not have won, hats off to Debbie Allen and the entire staff for giving America a glimpse into life at a Black College!
