I enjoy honoring Black History Month (BHM) on my blog because there are so many excellent Christmas episodes, specials and TV movies with exceptional African-American cast members. There are also many outstanding and touching Christmas TV story lines aimed at black audiences. This month I'm highlighting just a few of my favorites.
|"Make it funky now"|
|Drew, Chris and Tonya consider what they want for Christmas.|
|Remember when Walkmans were all the rage?|
|"You told Tanya WHAT?!"|
|Chris' racist teacher organizes a food drive for the underprivileged|
|Chris' dad Julius accidentally lets slip about the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy at the dinner table.|
In the end, Tonya learns that she's grown up enough to know that she was told to believe in Santa Claus so she would learn about the spirit of giving. She proves how grown up she is by giving Chris one of her Christmas presents: a game of checkers. But Tonya also demonstrates she's still a little girl by being an ungracious winner, obnoxiously beating Chris at his new board game.
This Christmas episode of Everybody Hates Chris can see viewed on the First Season DVD, disc 2. It's also available on Youtube and below:
