Erika Alexander, who found fame as Maxine Shaw on the classic sitcom Living Single, details what it was really like to rise to fame with the Cosby Show in the 80s, ride the crest of the Golden Era of Black TV in the 90s, and navigate Hollywood as a Black actress after that Black entertainment boom went bust in the 2000s.

You can follow Erika Alexander on Twitter and Instagram, and you can check out her new company, Color Farm here.

Living Single is now streaming on Hulu.

Additional songs featured in the show were “Pianissimo” and “Everything in Moderation” by Takstar, and "Hip Hop Beat to Contemplate To” by Cedric Wilson.
