Black stars are taking over TV this fall and we can't wait.
Discussions surrounding diversity in the media have finally reached a critical mass, and it's still evident that not everyone in the industry knows what diversity really means (we're looking at you Matt Damon). But more importantly, black and brown people are finally being represented in a variety of genres from sci-fi to comedy in new and returning series.
These diverse shows and the actors that star in them are also getting the award recognition they deserve including the Emmy-nominated performance of Taraji P. Henson as the wildly entertaining Cookie Lyon on "Empire" and Emmy-winner Viola Davis's dynamic portrayal of Annalise Keating on "How To Get Away With Murder."
Here are 15 shows with black cast-members that we can't wait to see dominate this fall.
