Michelle's Progenitor: Phyicia RashadClaire Huxtable

Wednesday, July 29, 2009

No black woman, not Esther Rolle, not Hattie McDaniel, not Halle Berry, not anyone, has shaped popular culture's portrayal of the successful black woman like Claire Huxtable.
The power of "The Cosby Show" still lives on in the way Americans see First Lady Michelle Obama, a thoughtful mother and wife.
Claire's professional style, her motherful gaze, defied the prevailing stereotype at the time, that the black American woman was a weakling, a victimized mother that struggled to stay off the streets and frequently met the familiar hands of abuse.
Michelle has brought back everything that Claire stood for. But Michelle is real. Wow.
