Right from the jump, The Other Black Girl wants you to know that the workplace is a nightmare.
Hulu’s new series, based on the novel by Zakiya Dalila Harris, opens in the 1980s at the offices of Wagner Books. The company’s first Black editor, Kendra Rae Phillips (Cassi Maddox), is leaving for the day, not with the calm fatigue of someone ready to go home, but with the frantic worry of someone being pursued.
