When We Admired Black Women On TV: Our Favorite Characters of Yesteryear

Angela, “Boy Meets World

This may come as a bit of a wildcard to some of you but for one reason or another Angela (Trina McGee) left quite an impression on me as a kid. I think it was a combination of the fact that she was so gorgeous, so funky in her wardrobe and hair styling and her relationship with Shawn represented a dynamic I’d never seen on television before. And not just because she was black and he was white– though that was interesting. What struck me the most about their relationship, was the fact that it was the first time I’d seen the complexities of a relationship dealt with in a pre-teen sitcom. I remember shedding a few tears when Shawn and Angela broke up, though they both claimed to still have feelings for each other.
