It was a spin-off series from The Cosby Show, originally centered around Denise Huxtable, and the life of students at Hillman College, a fictional historically Black college in Virginia.  
While it was a spin-off from the Cosby Show, A Different World typically addressed issues that were avoided by the Cosby Show writers (race and class relations, the Equal Rights Amendment).
