Tichina Arnold won an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series for her first season starring in the critically acclaimed comedy "Everybody Hates Chris," a series inspired by the childhood experiences of comedian Chris Rock. Arnold plays Rochelle, Chris' (Tyler James Williams) strict, sassy mother, who runs the household on a tight budget, but is the glue that holds the family together.

Recognized for her NAACP Image Award-winning role as Pam Jones on "Martin," Tichina Arnold has also appeared on television in "Ryan's Hope," "All My Children," "The Cosby Show," "Law & Order," "The Norm Show" and "One on One."

In film, she has starred in "Big Momma's House," with Martin Lawrence, the critically acclaimed "Civil Brand," with Mos Def and LisaRaye McCoy, as well as "Dancing in September," "Scenes from a Mall" and "The Little Shop of Horrors." Her most recent film, "Wild Hogs," co-starring Tim Allen, Martin Lawrence, William H. Macy and John Travolta, was released in early 2007.

After getting her first taste of performing in front of her family's church congregation at age 4, Arnold began vocal training and appearing on stage at an early age. She first appeared in "The Me Nobody Knows" at Brooklyn's Billie Holiday Theatre, followed by "Hair," "Romance and Hard Times," and "Haggadah" at The Joseph Papp Public Theatre. In 2004, she toured in the lead role of the musical hit "If These Hips Could Talk," which broke box office records in over 55 cities.

In addition, Arnold lends her time to several charitable organizations and events, including the Kids' Choice Awards, The NAACP Image Awards, and frequently sings the National Anthem at various celebrity sporting events. She also remains active in her community by speaking out on issues that involve the NAACP in the entertainment industry.

Currently, she is writing a screenplay.

Originally from Queens, New York, Tichina and her daughter, Alijah, live in Los Angeles.
