Bern Nadette Stanis first wowed the world as “Thelma” on ‘Good Times.’ As part of the Evans family, she helped pave the way for the sensitive portrayal of African American families in popular entertainment, in addition to specifically becoming a positive role model for many young black women from similar backgrounds. ‘Good Times’ definitely made television history as one of the most-watched shows of all time, and remains much-loved today as a milestone in black cultural history. Bern Nadette celebrated the legacy of ‘Good Times’ and other great black shows this year with TV One during its ‘Way Back When’ series in honor of Black History Month.
