Black History Month Pop Culture Challenge Week 3! 7. Who Am I? Name this pioneering entertainer. (10 points) The Rules again: - You will have until Sunday evening at 8:00 pm to submit your answers to me via e-mail at quiz@whatwouldthembido.com. -I will post the answers and the top 10 scores every Tuesday. -The quiz will be cumulative, so anyone can take the lead at any time! The best part is, because I love my readers so much, the winner gets a $100 gift certificate to iTunes, Target, or Amazon.com! I’m so for real! The best way to go about this is to copy and paste the quiz into an e-mail, title the e-mail “Week One” insert your answers and send it to me. I will only accept one entry per week per person, and you may not use an anonymous e-mail address for submissions. Don’t leave answers in the comments because what’s the point of that?! Lastly, if you use the internet to find the answers you’se a CHEATER, but to guard against you sneaky petes not all of the questions can be answered through Google alone anyway so don’t even try to break fly! And yes, there will always be an extra credit bonus question that loyal readers will have an easier time answering. 1. Photo ID. This is the cast photo of what short-lived 90's sitcom? (5 points)
