Okay, so for a while I’ve been thinking about how important it was that A Different World featured a plot on a character (Terrence) discovering islam and converting to become Muslim. It was a subject a lot of Black Americans knew but it was not really talked about in the main stream media. And with seeing this episode and watching Terrence grow as a character and gain the support form his father is an important narrative that needed to be seen/ portrayed. The fact that Islam was being discussed on a tv series in a positive outlook is very uncommon. I was just always surprised I’ve never seen a post on Terrence or this subject so I needed to post it to show my support and allow others to be aware of it’s importance to the Black & Muslim community.
