10 Ways ‘Living Single’ Was Way Ahead Of Its Time

Living Single is definitely one of my favorite shows hands down. Who remembers that Thursday night lineup growing up? Every character brought something different to the show but Maxine Shaw was always my favorite. Kyle and Max chemistry and jokes were EPIC and Original. Regine would definitely be the TOP Fashion Youtuber these days , her fashion was SLAYING and ALWAYS ON POINT….she taught me so much. Here why they were ahead of they time.

In celebration of the 23rd anniversary of the iconic show, we remember all the ways Living Single was ahead of its time.

The hit sitcom Living Single broke boundaries when it debuted in 1993. It was the first time we saw four successful Black women living in all their intricacies. For five seasons, we dated, cried, and laughed with characters Khadijah, Synclaire, Régine, and Max while they navigated the single girls’ world.

It Showcased Black Women As Entrepreneurs:

Régine Had The Wig Game On Lock

Long before Kylie Jenner claimed she made wigs famous, Régine was a proud wig-wearing diva, known for switching up her hair as frequently as she changed underwear.

It Featured An All-Black Cast

tumblr_natkqqOEB71r6ws5io1_250

Prime time never looked so good. When Living Single debuted in 1993, there were only a few all-Black casts on TV, none of which were led by Black women.

Black Women Living Life Sexually Liberated

Whether you were gushing over Obie and Synclaire’s juvenile chemistry or getting your fix when Max shamelessly hooked up with Kyle, watching Black women explore their sexuality on TV was unprecedented.

It Shattered Beauty Stick-Figure Standards

During a time when most actresses were stick-thin, Khadijah shattered beauty standards with her curvy frame.

It Put A Black Female Lawyer On TV

tumblr_n8mfaeqx7m1tv3ydwo7_r2_250-1

Maxine wasn’t just the hungry friend (though she enjoyed eating more than average), she represented so much more. She was a badass, Black attorney and didn’t let you forget it.

Black Romance

It was hard not to adore Obie and Synclaire’s relationship as we watched them grow individually and together every week. Their quirky romance reminded us there’s someone out there for everyone.

Being A Successful Career Woman With An Active Dating Life

giphy-5

Contrary to popular belief, being a successful working woman doesn’t mean you can’t have an active and equally successful dating life. Khadijah never had problems getting a man.

What Black Sisterhood Looks Like

tumblr_nd506wuC1j1tv3ydwo8_r1_250

Despite the foolish and catty behavior seen on reality TV today, Living Single portrayed Black women in our natural light: as confidants, hard-workers, and supportive women who uplift one another.

Being Single & Proud

giphy-2

There wasn’t an episode of Living Single that didn’t provide man candy. From Morris Chestnut to Cress Williams (Scooter), the ladies dated all the fine Black men.
