52 | The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air with Sahar Ali

Spoken word artist Sahar Ali joins Alan and Ellen to talk about The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air. We focused on three episodes in particular: the “why don’t he want me, man” episode, the one where Carlton overdoses on speed, and the one where Carlton and Will get arrested in a fancy car. We talked about representation on kids TV, Fresh Prince‘s willingness to leave things on a sad note, learning morals from Will Smith, and the legacy of rich, black families on TV.
