On this week’s episode, hosts Tymika Lawrence and Ezra Baker drink a cup of Idido Natural from Black & White Coffee Roasters in Chapel Hill, NC. This show is dedicated to the concept of the Very Special Episode, “one my favorite TV vehicles,” says Lawrence. “It’s a way for writers to bring a serious, heavy topic into homes where maybe people aren’t dealing with it…they humanize it by connecting with characters you know and love.”
Lawrence and Baker dive deep into a classic two-part episode of A Different World, "Honeymoon in LA". This particular episode—the premier of Season Six, aired on September 24th, 1992—starts after the “wedding episode” of ADW (“a classic moment of Black television” says Baker) and takes place during the 1992 Rodney King riots in Los Angeles.
