A Huxtable Kind of Love:

They don’t make them like they used to. I had no idea the impact this iconic show would have on me till years later. Cliff and Clair Huxtable will always go down as my ideal relationship. In a world of imperfections, I choose that idea of perfect. The way they counterbalanced each other is something I aspire to have. The portrayal of their love, albeit fictional, gives me hope. Cynical as I may be about the notion of love ofttimes, at my core, I’m a hopeless romantic, but that secret stays here. But even more importantly for me, what the Huxtables were able to accomplish in amending the prevalent idea of what it meant to be an African American family can never be underestimated. A great deal of my appreciation for Jazz music came from here also. When they would put a record on and dance in their living room, it felt like a very real and special secret you were being let in on. And all were welcomed. So pull in close and let the record play on.    -WV
