GREAT SHOW
27 June 2018 | by lumiereleclaireSee all my reviews

I love this show for so many reasons. Firstly, I love the way the Akils are trying to show not all black fathers abandon their children . Yasir's best friend is a dedicated dad who is relentless in the care of his daughter. Secondly, Nuri's character gives hope to those who are looking for love. Lastly, Yasir might be broke, but his intellect is intact. This is an all around excellent show that brings a lot of positives in what it means to be black in America. Can't help but give huge high fives to the Akils and Queen Oprah!
