With the exception of later addition Marisa Tomei to the cast, the students at Hillman were all high-achieving African Americans with unique personalities, contrary to the "token" roles popular media previously focused on. This show was never given the accolades it should have." In A Different World, Walter began to fall in love with a girl named Jaleesa played by Dawnn Lewis.I didn't make the Air Force basketball team and went into denial. In July 2006, in a cast reunion promoting the series syndication on cable channel Nick at Nite, Sinbad reflected on the program: "The show was a problem. They dated, and eventually became engaged but decided to cancel the wedding due to differing outlooks on life. Now all we get is shows about whether Kirk fathered Jasmine's baby. With ESPN's upcoming budget cut, I wonder who's gonna get the boot. Then they let go of Cris Carter and the whole NFL Countdown crew. Why don't we have black shows like Different World today?
I'm thinking ESPN will cut Herm Edwards, Dan Lebatard, and some NFL Insiders (but not Adam Shefter).
A Different World character Coach Walter Oakes (portrayed to perfection by Sinbad) is a legend in urban culture. A towering man with outfits as colorful as his personality, the Hillman College graduate was a staple around campus.
The football, basketball, baseball, and track coach, also co-director of the Gilbert Hall dorm, Walter’s loud voice rang like an alarm when he’d enter a room.
On the other hand, his fiancée Jaleesa Vinson, also his counterpart directing Gilbert, found his behavior challenging.
Sadly, shockingly, and unforgettably, Walter and Jaleesa parted at the altar.
