Comments Off on Yaya DaCosta Talks Hair and Heritage as Seen through 'Our Kind of People'
Yaya DaCosta is stepping into her own spotlight in her new Fox drama.
Based on the nonfiction book by the same name, Fox’s Our Kind of People is a dramatic tale of family secrets, the past’s effect on the present, class and social divides, and Black elitism set against the backdrop of the historic Oak Bluffs neighborhood of Martha’s Vineyard, MA.
DaCosta takes the lead as Angela Vaughn, a haircare entrepreneur with ties to Martha’s Vineyard’s Black elite that may run deeper than she realizes. After inheriting a home in the upscale enclave after her mother’s sudden passing, Angela decides to relocate to her childhood hometown with her daughter, seeking a fresh start and answers about her own past.
