Happy Mother's Day!

Through life, our mothers have been there to love us, nurture us and sometimes offer a stern word when we need it. And when it comes to showing the multifaceted talents of black women on the small screen, these women had it under control. From Florida Evans to Claire Huxtable and even Mother Winslow, these ladies gave the world a glimpse of the strength and sass of black moms.

In honor of all the mothers, we've pulled together a list of our favorite sitcom moms. Check out the slideshow below and let us know if we left anyone out.
