Day 21: Mara Brock Akil, Regina Hicks, and Karin Gist Gave Us Gold

Mara Brock Akil, Regina Hicks, and Karin Gist Gave Us Gold in Girlfriends, a true look into being black, free, complicated, and successful. I love it!

Whenever I think of the show girlfriends, I think of simple days. The only drama I knew was Toni’s quest not to be bored, Joan’s anxiety with getting married, and Lynn’s next stop on her fashionably hip and homeless tour. Oh hell naw - we can’t forget Mya, my biggest literary inspiration, kind of. ALL of that, and them come to mind, but as well, the creator and writer, Mara Brock Ail! She created a classic with that one!


Karin Gist and Regina Hicks are due their credit as part of the team who kept the story going, spinning gold in each episode, solidifying my young adult years.
