Happy 29th Birthday To The Cosby Show! When it premiered in 1984, THE COSBY SHOW broke down racial barriers in TV by portraying an African-American family comfortably assimilated in upper-middle-class white America. Now showing in syndication (and on DVD), it continues to educate and entertain its audience. This show right here helped put Black America on the map in a FABULOUS light on and off television. Yes, Black American household did, do and will continue to exist with a married couple who are influential in the workforce. From those of you who may not know The Cosby Show is a classic family-friendly show which centers on an African-American family whose parents are educated professionals. Cliff (Bill Cosby) and Clair (Phylicia Rashad) are gentle and trusting, and their five children respond with respect and a clear realization of what’s expected of them.
The Huxtables live in Brooklyn, New York, and face challenges typical of most American families. Cliff, a GYN, and Clair, a lawyer, are the parents everyone longs for. They rarely argue with each other or their children, relying instead on communication to work through issues. The Huxtable children are Denise (Lisa Bonet), Theo (Malcolm-Jamal Warner), Vanessa (Tempestt Bledsoe), Rudy (Keshia Knight Pulliam), and Sondra (Sabrina Le Beauf. This role was originally created for Whitney Houston). Well, Keystrokes By Kimberly wants to shout HAPPY 29TH BIRTHDAY to THE COSBY SHOW. We will celebrate by have a Cosby Show Marathon at some point this weekend. They put Thursday nights on the map!
