Hobo Radio Interview – Karyn Parsons

Subscribe:

From 1990 to 1996, Karyn Parsons could be seen playing Hillary, the socialite eldest daughter of the Banks family on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Through syndication and streaming services, the show remains popular to this day.

We talked to Parsons about Fresh Prince‘s legacy, the recent virtual cast reunion and how the late, great James Avery really was like a father to her.

She also talks about Sweet Blackberry, the nonprofit she formed “to bring little known stories of African American achievement to children everywhere.” The organization has told the stories of Henry “Box” Brown, Garret Morgan, Janet Collins and Bessie Coleman using narrators Alfre Woodard, Queen Latifah, Chris Rock and Laurence Fishburne. Parsons is hoping to create more videos and books.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • Interstitial – “Vishnu Meets Funk” and “Ancient Ritual” by Lucas Perný & Miloslav Kollar
  • End – “I’m Into It” by Toussaint Morrison
