The Jeffersons, The Obamas and 23 Other Black Couples That Changed America
A few weeks back when Sherman Hemsely died, I couldn’t help but think of how much The Jeffersons had changed America. Then it struck me that George & Weezy weren’t the only Black couple that had made an impact on our culture. I started to write a list of Black couples that I thought had a profound impact on American culture, and I could barely write fast enough. Some of the couples were fiction and others were very real, but they all changed the trajectory of life as we know it. So I compiled a list of the 25 most impactful Black couples (in my humble opinion). Here is my list in no particular order. Who would you add to the list?
