The beauty of Black hair is being celebrated by Tracee Ellis Ross in her new docuseries on Hulu, "The Hair Tales". Black women have long been vocal about the stereotypes and microaggressions they have experienced because of their hair which led to Dove developing the CROWN Act, which outlaws hair discrimination in 19 states as of today.

"The Hair Tales is an intimate and intentional discovery and exploration of the joy and beauty and power and humanity of Black women told through the metaphor of our hair. We are using hair as an organizing principle." says Tracee

The series examines the hair experiences of six strong Black women who have broken down barriers including; Issa Rae, Rep. Ayanna Pressley, CHIKA, Marsai Martin, Chloe Bailey, and Oprah Winfrey.

“To be able to have an intentional and intimate conversation with Oprah, where I’m the one interviewing her, and to have her have the space to reveal things that I’ve never heard her say before about her own journey is so moving,” she said

Each guest exhibits extraordinary honesty in sharing their experiences, from terrifying tales and instances of fortitude in the face of difficulty to arrive at a point of joy and celebration of their natural hair.

The six-part series is a must-watch for every Black woman and airs on OWN and Hulu.
