Pop culture nostalgia is definitely a thing these days … and one of the favorite subjects of that nostalgia is about to get a little melanin.
Tracee Ellis Ross, Sanaa Lathan, Alfre Woodard and Regina King all posted on Instagram that they are rebooting the beloved 1980s comedy Golden Girls, with an all-Black cast, via Zoom, beginning at 8 pm tonight, Wisconsin time.

“This event is in partnership with Zoom, and the first episode is spotlighting and supporting Color of Change — the nation’s largest online racial justice organization,” it adds.
