Onyx Collective & OWN Announces Celebrity Guests For Original Docuseries ‘The Hair Tales’

“It is a love letter to black women.”

ONYX Collective and OWN announce guests for the original docuseries' THE HAIR TALES,' from Executive Producers Oprah Winfrey, Tracee Ellis Ross, and Michaela Angela Davis. The six-part series will provide a comprehensive perspective on Black hair, culture, and how Black women being the blueprint, have contributed to society.

As Black women, we all have stories about the journey of our coily, curly, or kinky roots. From heating hot combs on the stove and the bows, buttons, and beads. From telling our friends that our hair would've been to our hips if "Momma didn't put that perm in my hair when I was little."

The Hair Tales will feature Issa Rae, Chlöe Bailey, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley, Marsai Martin, and Chika.

Watching this show, produced by Culture House, Joy Mill Entertainment, Tetravision, and Harpo Films, will provide a pinch of humor, style, joy, and justice.

"Hair is a portal into the souls of Black women; it drives straight to the center of who we are." Ross shines a light on the importance of this project. "Our goal is to share this vibrant community, where we hold a sacred space for each other. Like many women, I can trace my journey to self-acceptance through my hair. This series is personal and universal, American and global. It is a love letter to Black women."
