10 Black Actresses from the 80s and 90s That We Loved


1. Tia and Tamera

“Go home Roger!” No real reason why men used to sit around debating on which of these identical twins looked better, but we did. For some reason, I always picked Tamara, I thought that Tia was a little stuck up. (Years later, we would find out just how far from the truth I was, but still.) Tia and Tamara gave brothers, who did not have, hope that we could meet twins and live forever.

2. Lisa Turtle

Many of us grew up watching Saved By the Bell and as you all know, Lisa Turtle was the only Black girl on the show. Personally, I always understood where Lisa was coming from on this show. I went to middle school with all white people and being one of the only Black people, we all used to date each other. Lisa gave brothers hope that the one Black girl at school would also be as cute and funny as Lisa.

– Dr. J

Dr. J This guy has no idea what his position is at SBM.org. He's a well travelled blogger. You can find his work at SingleBlackMale, Necole Bitchie's BitchieLife.com, BuppietheBlog.com, The Book of Jackson, This Is The Dream. He has also published several guest posts at blog all around the blogosphere. He can't spell really good, and grammar isn't his strong suit, but he really appreciates you reading his posts for content, and content only. (I feel very Michael Vick'ish referring to myself in the 3rd Person.)
