The Beauty of Retorspect, November Actress Edition: Tracee Ellis Ross

So, what has Tracee Ellis Ross, daughter of music icon Diana Ross and music manager Robert Silberstein, been up to lately?

A lot, actually. She now stars in the ABC sitcom "black-ish," about a black suburban family that tries to be more black than suburban, least they fall into the trap of being "like everyone else" in the suburbs. 

At this writing, "black-ish" has been picked up for a full season.  As it follows "Modern Family" (Wednesdays at 9:30 ET), this can only be good news.  Because no sitcom following "Modern Family" has ever succeeded, "black-ish" may end up breaking the curse.

This is the first time I've featured Tracee Ellis Ross since August 2009 . . . which actually precedes the premiere of "Modern Family."  I'm sorry I took so long in returning to her.
