TV show description:
A soapy drama series, the Our Kind of People TV show is based on Lawrence Otis Graham’s book, Our Kind of People: Inside America’s Black Upper Class, and was created by Karin Gist.
The series takes place in the aspirational world of Oak Bluffs on Martha’s Vineyard, a historical stronghold where the rich and powerful Black elite have come to play for over 50 years.
In the story, a strong-willed and single mother named Angela Vaughn (DaCosta) sets out to reclaim her family’s name and make an impact with her revolutionary haircare line that highlights the innate, natural beauty of Black women. However, she soon discovers a dark secret about her own mother’s past that turns her world upside-down and shakes up this community forever.
