The family-centric comedy written by Kenya Barris focused on a successful advertiser Andre Johnson(Anthony Anderson) and his African American family living in Sherman Oaks’s suburban neighborhood. While trying to provide the best life for his five kids, Andre must keep his family in touch with their black heritage and prepare them for the realities of being black in America.
Black-ish has received widespread praise throughout its spell for its outspoken verdicts on societal issues such as racism, police brutality, colorism, education, history, segregation, and several factors affecting minorities. Furthermore, due to the extraordinary exploration of these subjects through humorous storytelling and rib-cracking dialogues, Blackish has received 68 nominations and 28 wins from various academic and television bodies and has even merited a shout-out from the white house.
The show’s commercial success led to the birth of two spin-offs; Grown-ish, which followed the adventure of the eldest daughter, Zoey Johnson(Yara Shahidi), going off to college and Mixed-ish; a throwback to Bow’s adolescent days in the late 80s.
