Celebrity mom Karyn Parsons says she does not miss playing the self-indulgent diva Hilary Banks on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. It could be that she’s too busy juggling play dates in the park for daughter Lana, 4, and son Nico, 10 months, to reminisce about her narcissistic television character. In addition to parenting, these days, Parsons is thinking about education. In fact, while she was filming The Fresh Prince, her mother would call her with Black history stories. She felt that some of the stories would be well-suited for a children’s book and began working on a compilation. In 2003 Parsons married Alexander Rockwell and started a family. ‘I was thinking about my own responsibilities as a parent that were coming up, and teaching my daughter about her heritage.’ So, in 2004 Parsons started Sweet Blackberry, a production company based in New York, where she and her family live. She’s written and produced two animated films that are available on DVD.
She says that the stories are meant to be a fun way to teach children about their history, ‘especially about Black Americans who we don’t hear about so much. If young people get interested early, it’s something that will stay with them for a lifetime.’
