It's not often that black college students get to see their experiences in the media, so it's especially great when such an opportunity arises.
A Different World ..
From the creators of the top-rated THE COSBY SHOW comes A DIFFERENT WORLD, a fresh funny situation comedy that follows the triumphs, trials, and tribulations of students of Hillman College. This half-hour spin off of the top rated THE COSBY SHOW, was the first ensemble situation comedy to immerse America in student life at a historically black college. Enjoying a successful 6-run season run on NBC, from 1987 to 1993, A DIFFERENT WORLD bas been widely honored for its sensitive, intelligent treatment of contemporary issues.
BET's College Hill: The Black Real World, is a reality show about a house filled with African AMerican College Students. It isn't always perfect, but it's one step closer to exploring Black College Life.
BET also has "The Center" on it's program lineup. The Center is a mix of music and high school / college tips.
IMU and mtvU production is an online series about college couples keeping in touch with a little technology and a lot of love. The first season's winners was an African AMerican couple Jackson and Marianna. Black, smart, and inlove. Everything I like to see.
