Video: Introducing Jaja's African Hair Braiding by Jocelyn Bioh


This dazzling world premiere of Jaja's African Hair Braiding welcomes you into Jaja’s bustling hair braiding salon in Harlem where every day, a lively and eclectic group of West African immigrant hair braiders are creating masterpieces on the heads of neighborhood women. During one sweltering summer day, love will blossom, dreams will flourish and secrets will be revealed. The uncertainty of their circumstances simmers below the surface of their lives and when it boils over, it forces this tight-knit community to confront what it means to be an outsider on the edge of the place they call home. 

In the video above, playwright Jocelyn Bioh and director Whitney White discuss this extraordinary new play, coming to Broadway in Fall 2023. Don't forget to get your group tickets to see it by visiting the show page below.
