A Different World: 1x13

The Prime of Miss Lettie Bostic

Jaleesa fills in as resident director after Stevie leaves the university to get married (to Professor Walcott?). The students attend a lecture by Lettie Bostic, a renowned world traveler. Lettie dropped out of Hillman and moved to Paris, where she kept company with Picasso and other artistic icons and even worked as a spy during World War II. She confesses that she still regrets quitting school, so the dean offers to give her credit for “”life experience”” if she takes over as Gilbert’s resident director. During a dorm meeting, Lettie immediately rubs the girls the wrong way with her blunt comments. Jaleesa, who is bitter about losing her leadership position, organizes a revolt in the hopes of driving Lettie away. Lettie covers for the girls when they break a television set, and both sides agree to be less abrasive.
