You know who I'm gonna do a thread on next? Daphne Maxwell Reid... y'all hate on her because y'all don't know HALF of what she's done. pic.twitter.com/YElseXD5sI— Eric M. Black (@eb4prez) September 7, 2017
It wasn't so easy for Daphne Maxwell-Reid to be a part of the cast for "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," especially since she took over a role that wasn't originally hers. Reid took over for Janet Hubert as Aunt Viv in the famous sitcom, and fans were pointing out the change a lot. Since then, she has been getting the heat for the recasting.
However, she also had a lot of fans who weren't about to discredit all that she's done, which is quite a lot.
In October 1969, she was the first ever black woman to be in the cover of Glamour Magazine. She was also the first black woman to be crowned "Homecoming Queen" at the Northwestern University, which had white student boycotting after her win. Her school paper didn't publish her win because of the backlash, but JET Magazine made sure to step in and highlight all of the black homecoming queens during that time that did not get the recognition they were supposed to.

She went on to be an actress, and through her profession she met her husband, Tim Reid. In the show "Sister, Sister," Reid played Tamera Mowry'sa adpotive dad. Recently, they all got together because they had good news to share: they were sharing the screen yet again.
