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

The Women of Living Single, “Living Single”

My love for “Living Single” is not a joke. I hold this show on the same level as “Golden Girls,” and anyone who knows me, knows I love “Golden Girls” like I love water to drink. The women on this show were diverse, intelligent…I know you’re thinking what about Synclaire? Think about it, Synclaire had a different kind of smarts. She didn’t have the most common sense and she might not have been the sharpest crayon in the box, but she had emotional smarts. If you were sad or angry, she was the roommate you wanted. But I digress. The rest of the women all had their own strengths to contribute to the friendship circle. And though they all ended up finding love, the show never made you feel like they needed men to be whole women.
