You’ve Come a Long Way, Lady: Winifred Hervey
Black women in television have faced the double-edged sword of racism and sexism, but have managed to break down barriers through their creativity and persistence. Take Winifred Hervey. Her early writing credits go back to “Laverne & Shirley” and “Mork & Mindy.” She went on to write and produce for “The Golden Girls,” as well as to executive produce “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air,” “In the House,” and “The Steve Harvey Show.”
