Black-ish is an American single-camera comedy series created by Kenya Barris which revolves around an African-American family man who struggles to gain a sense of cultural identity that both honours the past and embraces the future, whilst raising his kids in a predominantly white, upper-middle-class neighbourhood.
Like any parents, Andre "Dre" (Anthony Anderson) and Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross) Johnson want to give their children the best. But their offspring's childhood is turning out to be much different than theirs.
In the Season 4 premiere, "Juneteenth": the Johnsons go to Jack and Diane's school play about Columbus Day, and Dre is dismayed by the historically inaccurate way that the holiday is portrayed.
He feels like there aren't enough black holidays, so he enlists Aloe Blacc at work to help him create a catchy song to raise awareness for a holiday worth celebrating, Juneteenth.
