Heavy hitters Lee Daniels and Karin Gist premiered their latest show on Fox this past Tuesday. Our Kind of People kept everyone on their toes and the first episode gave a glimpse of what to expect. A star-studded cast, which consists of Yaya DaCosta, Debbi Morgan, Nadine Ellis, Joe Morton, Morris Chestnut, Lance Gross, and others. As Angela (played by Yaya) tries to find her way in Oak’s Bluff with her entrepreneurial ideas, Leah Dupont (played by Nadine Ellis) tries to step out of her family’s shadow. After watching the first episode, here are five reasons why you would enjoy Our Kind of People.
Black Wealth: For years we’ve had to fight for our own wealth. The show delivers on that simply because it displays the power of being persistent and always staying 2 steps ahead of your opponent even if it stretching the truth. Angela is fighting to obtain wealth, while Leah Franklin-Dupont represents what wealth looks like.
