black-ish Details

Black-ish is a single-camera comedy about an upper-middle class African-American family living in Los Angeles, California. It is told through the perspective of the show’s star, Anthony Anderson, as Andre “Dre” Johnson. Dre is an advertising executive who fears his family is losing touch with their cultural heritage.

With help from his father, “Pops,” played by Laurence Fishburne, Dre tries to help his family re-establish their roots and debunk social stereotypes. The show also deals with everyday family issues such as when to have the sex talk, the controversy surrounding spanking, and helping your kids make friends.

Dre also has help from his wife, Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross), a doctor who is also the voice of reason. While Dre tends to let his emotions get to him, Rainbow is there to help calm him down. They work well together in their struggle to raise their four kids on top of their grueling full time jobs.

Dre’s concern that his family has become too assimilated begins when his oldest son, Andre Junior, starts going by Andy at school, joins the field hockey team, and announces he wants a Bar Mitzvah for his thirteenth birthday. While Dre works to teach him more about his culture, he also learns to accept that things are different for his kids than they were for him.
