Living Single became a staple of Black sisterhood in television after airing in 1993. Because I was not alive at that particular time, I was introduced to this superb show through it’s well-deserved, syndicated re-runs. Being an adult in 2020, I can see the direct influence Living Single had on the world. It revealed a new dynamic of Black American life, where each character represented a different nuance of what Blackness could look like, from style, politics, and even moral compass. With the incredible combination of Queen Latifah, Erika Alexander, Kim Coles, and Kim Fields, Living Single showed that regardless of differences, when the people you care about are in trouble, you band together to protect them, blood or not. The bond these dynamic women displayed gave new life and a new face to what it means to have family. This is especially important for young people who may not have strong connections to their blood relatives.
