Our Kind of People About the Show
Angela comes to Oak Bluffs, Massachusetts, to reclaim her family name in Our Kind of People. Back in her hometown, the single mother aspires to join the “sisterhood” of the area’s wealthy and powerful Black elite by launching a groundbreaking haircare line that emphasizes Black women’s inherent beauty. Angela discovers a shocking secret about her own mother early in the drama, which utterly turns her world upside down.
Like Empire, Our Kind of People has the potential to edify audiences about a societal sector they don’t know much about, as well as celebrate prosperous Black people who are not entertainers, athletes or criminals, Chestnut says to TV Line.
Also mentioned “Those [Empire] characters were fictionalized, as are our characters, but it’s set in a world that’s very real among the generationally Black elite who reside on Martha’s Vineyard,” Chestnut explains. “There are Black people who are extremely wealthy, and I’m excited for viewers to see that.”
