* '''[[Huey Freeman]]''' (voiced by Regina King) is the voice-of-reason and moral compass of the family. He is an intelligent, wise-beyond-his-years ten-year-old who is an avid reader and knowledgeable about a variety of subjects. He is heavily influenced by the theories of various left-wing [[social movements]] and [[social justice]] leaders. He is constantly ridiculed and underestimated by his family, who think he is a fool for having goals and values that aim higher than those of the lower class environment from which they came. In the show, it is mentioned that Huey has been declared a "domestic terrorist". While Huey promotes various social causes, he is openly contemptuous of African-American [[pop culture]] as portrayed in mainstream media for glamorizing wasteful extravagance, self-defeating lifestyles, and ignorance. Unlike the other characters, Huey rarely smiles; although, in the episode "[[Let's Nab Oprah]]", he smiles after his duel with Riley, he also smiles when Riley begins to succeed in winning basketball games in the episode "[[Ballin' (The Boondocks)|Ballin']]". He is also a skilled martial artist, beating Riley with ease in all of their fights, and has only lost to a few other opponents.

* '''[[Riley Freeman]]''' (also voiced by Regina King) is Huey's trouble-making, eight-year-old younger brother. Unlike his brother, Riley is an enthusiastic follower of contemporary African-American pop culture. Though he is otherwise charming, clever, and artistically gifted, Riley maintains loyalty to those pop culture ideals, even in the face of their self-destructive consequences. In the episode "[[The Fundraiser]]" Huey tries to warn him directly about the foregone conclusions of his poor decisions, but Riley offhandedly rebuffs him. The bulk of the series focuses on Riley's misadventures (most of which are fueled by his love of [[gangsta rap]], and a desire to emulate other people he admires), or on his various outlandish schemes, which his grandfather often endorses and assists in. Despite his wild nature and attempts to appear tougher than he actually is, Riley occasionally shows a softer, innocent side. In contrast to his brother, Riley is skilled in street fighting, as shown in "[[Home Alone]]" and "Smokin' with Cigarettes". Despite Riley's techniques rarely contending with Huey's martial arts skills, they work as a powerful team when having to confront common enemies together.
