This image released by ABC shows artwork by Kadir Nelson, showing the cast of "black-ish." When ABC decided the Johnsons of “black-ish” were due a portrait, it sought artist Kadir Nelson, a chronicler of contemporary African American experience and a fan of the sitcom.

Nelson said the approach fits a tumultuous year of racial reckoning and a devastating pandemic.  ABC's “black-ish” returns for its seventh season on Oct. 21, with the family portrait used for promoting the series.
