*“Being among the first of a few black women to work in popular television reminds me that one doesn’t choose to be a pioneer, one does what comes next in their journey, and sometimes you happen to be the first to do it.” These words, spoken by actress, education activist and entrepreneur, Daphne Maxwell Reid probably resonate with many deep thinkers; those who have (and continue to) live life on their own terms.

Maxwell Reid is no doubt recognized as a pioneer in television, where she portrayed guest starring roles in shows like “WKRP in Cincinnati” (where she first worked with her husband, Tim Reid, to whom she has been married since 1982), “Hill Street Blues,” and “Simon and Simon.” Then she moved on to lead status with the acclaimed series “Frank’s Place,” opposite Tim. That’s the couple on a TV Guide cover promoting the series below.
