What Binge Watching A Different World Taught Me

Netflix recently added A Different World to its collection and I gladly re-watched the entire series with fresh eyes and a grown up perspective.  The Cosby Show spin-off starring Lisa Bonet’s character Denise Huxtable and her experience at Cliff and Claire’s make-believe historically black alma mater Hillman College was a ground breaking show and I… Continue reading What Binge Watching A Different World Taught Me
