TV One is celebrating Mother’s Day all month long so this week’s tweet from @ranette_jones is inspired by our Represent Real Moms campaign.
My fav Different World episodes always included @MsPattiPatti & Diahann Carroll #representrealmoms

A Different World invited America into the fascinating world of HBCU’s and represented two entirely different, but REAL moms: Adele Wayne and Marion Gilbert. Adele was warm, sweet and always at the ready with her famous prune cobbler. Marion was full of class and sass and always supportive of her daughter Whitley.
So, are you #TeamAdeleWayne or #TeamMarionGilbert? Check out our “Best Black TV Mom” bracket to vote and keep an eye on our site to see how we continue to #representrealmoms.
