    If we look back at the history of 1988, Malcolm X, the African-American minister was killed already; poor black people were convulsed from New York to Los Angeles during riots over racial issues. Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, who were black artist, were trying to bring street level energy to their art.

    Plot and cast

    The new version of “The Wonder Years” is about a black southern family. It follows the life of 12 years old Dean Williams and his family. It shows the world of that time with his point of view. Dean’s father is a musician also a teacher of local college in Birmingham, Alabama.

    Dean’s role is portrayed by Elisha “EJ” Williams, while Dulé Hill plays his father. And Saycon Sengbloh is playing Dean’s mother Lillian Williams. Also Don Cheadle narrates the show as older version of Dean.

    The role of music

    In “The Wonder Days” music plays really important role. Because Dean’s father is a musician and also the composers were tasked to connect the era with the story through music.

    Co-composer Jacob Yoffee said that they want people the humanness of music. In the show the father has his own band, he thinks the entire score can be performed by that band. Roahn Hylton, another co-composer added that when they came to know that Dulé Hill, who played Dean’s father is jazz musician himself they became more excited about the possibilities.

    “The Wonder Years” has already stared airing in from 22nd of September, on ABC.
