On Wednesday night the world finally found out exactly what Black-ish is when the sitcom made it’s debut on ABC. The show which follows an affluent Black family trying to keep their children culturally grounded, opened strong following Modern Family in the 9:30 p.m. slot. The first episode drew a 3.3 rating with adults 18-49 and 10.8 million viewers.
But before it hit primetime HipHollywood got an exclusive invite on set to chat with the shows stars Anthony Anthony and Tracee Ellis Ross to get their take on the shows controversial title and why audiences relate to the show.
“We’re dealing with issues that’s everyone goes through we’re just Black doing it,” explained Anderson who is also one of the executive producers of the show.
Added Ross, “I think we’re in a time in our society where Black is something that can’t be clearly defined, and for this family, what are we holding on to, is it about culture, is it about tradition, is it about race, and what are we passing on to our children and the “isn” makes it more modern.”
Ross like her character Rainbow is bi racial, but Ross made it clear to us, she knows all about the struggles black women go through especially with our hair.
You can see more of these two on Black-ish Wednesday nights at 8pm on ABC.
