I would say no.

But I'm firmly of the opinion that Ester Rolle is the black Jean Stapleton.

I always pictured Horsford as more of an ebon Rue McClanahan.

thats quite the witty response, O Great Ruler of the Intardnets. In response to your queries:

Anna Maria Horsford (born March 6, 1948 in Harlem, New York, USA) is an African-American television and film actress. She is of Antiguan descent. At an early age, she was accepted into the New York High School of Performing Arts where she studied and perfected her acting abilitites. Her first major role on television was portraying the character of Clara Jones on the television soap opera, Guiding Light in 1979. She has made several guest appearances in sitcoms such as The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Sparks, Moesha,The Bernie Mac Show, and Girlfriends. She is known mostly for her portrayal of "Thelma Frye" on the sitcom Amen. That led to another prominent role on the sitcom The Wayans Bros.

I am Oveta.

Both Anna Marie Horsford and Bea Arthur consist of at least 327 pounds of meat between them and are known to be quite fond of a good stout.

Well which is it? Is she of Antiguan descent or African-American. Inquiring minds could care less.

Another insightful question! Generally speaking, most inhabitants of Antigua are of African descent. Anna Marie's great-great-great grandfather immigrated to America and thusly his offspring that were born in the United States are considered African-American by way of Antiguan descent. Thank you for your interest and I can clearly see how one could care less, but certainly not you.

Thank you for your dilligent research into the background of one of America's greatest Antiguan actors.
