On one of the most successful black sitcoms, “Good Times,” Bern Nadette Stanis, aka Thelma,  was the eye candy for teens everywhere. Stanis travels the world extensively these days to meet fans and sign copies of her book, Situations 101: Relationships The Good, The Bad & The Ugly and her book of poems, For Men Only. Stanis returned to Chicago, the setting of “Good Times,” to attend the recent African Festival of the Arts. Photos: Dr. Dawj.
