Julia

A nurse moves to L.A. with her son after her husband's death in Vietnam and goes to work at an aerospace company. The sitcom was conventional in most respects, but the role for Diahann Carroll was the first weekly starring vehicle for a black woman since `Beulah' in the 1950s, and both she and the show received Emmy nominations.

MIXED-ISH - In "mixed-ish," Rainbow Johnson recounts her experience growing up in a mixed-race family in the '80s and the constant dilemmas they had to face over whether to assimilate or stay true to themselves. Bow's parents Paul and Alicia decide to move from a hippie commune to the suburbs to better provide for their family. As her parents struggle with the challenges of their new life, Bow and her siblings navigate a mainstream school in which they're perceived as neither black nor white. This family's experiences illuminate the challenges of finding one's own identity when the rest of the world can't decide where you belong. (ABC/Kelsey McNeal)
