Black TV: Moesha

The show focused on the life of an upper middle class, African-American family through the eyes of a typical girl. Her father Frank, a widower and Saturn car salesman, has married Dee, the vice-principal at Moesha’s school, much to Moesha’s dismay. The series was created by Ralph Farquhar, along with the writing team of Sara V. Finney and Vida Spears. The settings for the show include the Mitchell household and the teen hang-out, The Den.

The show dealt with “real teen social issues”, such as teen pregnancy, drug use, race relations, premarital sex, the death of a parent, and day-to-day issues faced by teenagers at home and in school. In one of the most controversial episodes, “Secrets & Lies”, the Mitchell family learned from Frank’s Aunt Hattie that he is the biological father of Dorian, who both the Mitchells and Dorian himself believed to be Frank’s nephew. The shocking news of Frank’s infidelity (during his first marriage) turned the family upside-down and resulted in Moesha moving out of the house and Dorian’s rebellion.
