“The Band Got Back Together,” she said in her caption. “35 Years Going Strong.”

The photo was posted days after the cast reunited for a discussion panel at Wilmington Public Library in Wilmington, Delaware, to commemorate the anniversary.



Summer’s Instagram post received replies from fellow actresses Vanessa Williams and Rachel True.

However, a common denominator in the replies was how youthful Dawnn Lewis, who portrayed Jaleesa Vinson–Taylor, looked.

“Jaleesa didn’t age at all,” one reply said.

A spinoff of The Cosby Show, A Different World premiered on Sept. 24, 1987 and chronicled the lives of college students who attendd a historically Black college.
