Growing up in the 90’s and early 00’s made us all avid TV watchers. Whether it was Nickelodeon or ABC’s “TGIF” lineup, the amount of kid-friendly programs were excellent at providing the laughs and teaching valuable life lessons. Back then and still today, it seems every predominantly white show had a token black friend and in honor of Throwback Thursday, we’re highlighting our all-time favorites.
