In the 1980s we began to see some small fruits of our struggle to achieve integration, but we found out that even after success new problems and challenges awaited us. Our arrival in corporate suites and boardrooms, suburban neighborhoods, and new upwardly mobile social networks did not eliminate racism or other problems. So in 2009, the theme song from this 1981-1987 situation comedy remains not only a ghetto prayer but a prayer that has transcended race and class to spread to the hearts and lips of people all across America! The more things change, the more they stay the same.
Gimme A Break, Nell Carter
