Black-ish returns January 26 with the second half of season 7. We sat down with star Marcus Scribner exclusively to discuss his journey on the show.
The sitcom will continue to show the lives of the Johnson family and will even explore many of the important points from 2020 and how the family is coping with life in quarantine, Covid-19, racial injustice, etc. Black-ish continues to bring many of the conversations happening in Black households to network television while adding a comedic flare. The cast takes interest in these topics both on and off set and most of the cast can be seen advocating for the same issues as the Johnsons via social media. For star Marcus Scribner it is crucial that they take on the responsibility of advocating for change and to amplify Black voices both on the show with their characters and in their personal lives.
