It has been 20 years since “The Cosby Show” went off the air, and since then, many black sitcoms have tried to fill the void that the iconic show left behind.

She was smart beyond her years, and had the most interesting friends (we’ll touch on that in a few).
After the show ended, a show in which we basically watched her grow up, she went off, went to school at Spelman (got her Bachelor’s in Sociology), became a member of Delta Sigma Theta, and basically lived a normal life.
