Remembering Sherman Hemsley



Sherman Hemsley, who memorably starred as the comical genius and totally politically incorrect George Jefferson on CBS' long-running sitcom "The Jeffersons," died today, July 24. He was 74.

When I was a little girl in Saudi Arabia, "The Jeffersons" was one of the few American TV shows that aired regularly. Saudi TV would play the old episodes, and for a little kid this was a window into "America" and American culture and  it's very complicated race relations.
He was a gift for us.

Rest in peace Sherman. You're moving on up.
