| Shows like this aren't common, miss this era of TV.
I have been watching a different world from Lisa Bonet to Jada Pinkett. The show became more than just a sitcom showing our community early on a glimpse of life in college to tackling racism, sexual harassment, stds, sexism, colorism, and positively introduced us to sororities and fraternities. "A Different World" helped glorify not only going to college but an HBCU and inspired a lot of people to take that step after high school even after realizing Hill man College was a fictitious institution . The show became even more important and relatable after I myself attended an HBCU. I met those Whitleys, hung with Dwaynes, had classes with Kims, worked with Charmaines and partied with Winnys. .
