    The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, with Tatiyana Ali as Ashley Banks, aired from 1990-1996. Just though I’d fix MN’s typo.

      Fix “women” to “woman” while you’re at it. MN needs a new proofreader.

    it’s funny how Raven’s short bio says of course she grew into a beautiful woman…. however Keshia Pulliam is very beautiful, even prettier than Raven now ..and she does not get credit for it on here….smh seems like a skin color thing to me which is absolutely ridic because they are both african american females…smh
