Frankly, the mischaracterization of the glorious Mrs. Huxtable as “benign” and “reassuring” turned me into an angry black woman. One of Clair’s most admirable qualities — something I took notice as a child growing up in the early ’90s — was that she never bit her tongue.

And seeing this vocal and sharp portrayal of a black woman and TV mother on primetime was revolutionary.
