Who Is Aisha Hinds?

I was browsing my Instagram one day and came across the photo of a woman in this bright yellow pants suit with uber fabulous shoes and thought: “I love her style”. Since browsing and curating content is a serious business for me, I try not to get caught up so I kept scrolling.

Not too many days went by until I saw what I thought was a different woman in another fabulous pants suit, but then I immediately made the connection and recognized her to be the same woman in the yellow pants suit from some days before.

I knew at that point, she must be working on something big, because not only has she shown up on my feed twice, but I see her posing in front of a collage of Oprah Magazine covers…so something must be going on with her.

Upon digging a little deeper, I learn that Aisha Hinds was cast to play the part of Harriet Tubman in the WGN America TV series: Underground.

As I was putting together this blog, I was browsing her Instagram for photos and thought: “I know her face from somewhere though” and then it clicked: She was also on The Dome TV series!

What really intrigued me about Aisha is when I learned that her parents are Grenadian and making the connection of my mom being from Grenada too, I deduce that we are cousins and I’m sticking with it.
