‘Black-ish’ returned after a mid-season hiatus this month and is back on its weekly schedule. Currently in its sixth season, the show has been revolutionary in every right. For starters, according to The Guardian, it focuses on family who do not ““happen to be black” but [are] a family who are black.””
The sitcom revolves around Dre, a successful executive and his African-American family. Despite his success, he finds it regularly challenging to get his family to mingle with the neighbors and on a larger scale, find his place in society. This leads to some standard sitcom squabbles that form the conflict in the self-sustained narrative for each episode.
The success of the show has led to several spin-offs including ‘Mixed-ish’ which is about a mixed-race family and ‘Grown-ish’ which centers on adulthood. ‘Black-ish’ and its spin-offs have been acclaimed for their portrayal of colored families, diverse characters and direct approach to confronting race-related issues.

Black-ish Season 6 Episode 11 Recap:
The eleventh episode of the sixth season of ‘Black-ish’ is titled ‘Hair Day’ and tackles the issue of African-American female hair and identity. The episode focuses on Bow taking Diane to a hair salon and using that as a bonding opportunity while Dre and Junior compete with each other for the best barbecue.
Staying true to show’s most characteristic feature, this episode tackles real issues related to race and identity. For instance, the episode takes a turn when Diane announces to Bow that she wants to get straight hair as opposed to her natural coils. Bow calls her mother and her stylist to assist her in making Dianne see the beauty of her hair. But charmingly, the conflict ends with an important message: of being comfortable with oneself regardless of the race or any perceived beauty standards arising out of stereotyped hair styles.
The episode was particularly revered for directly tackling a common but important social issue that African-American women face. Several viewers even took to twitter to express their appreciation.
Wow, where was this episode when I was growing up 😭#Blackish
