Vanessa Baden strips away the pressures of society and exposes her vulnerability while talking about skincare, motherhood, and her natural hair journey.

Emmy Award-winning writer and actress, Vanessa Baden’s book, Far Away From Close to Home: A Black Millennial Woman in Progress reveals issues that many of us experience as a Black woman living in America. The book, which releases on May 4th, is a collection of essays, exploring what home means for a Black millennial woman.

When asked about her book she clearly states, “I don’t think that it is everybody’s story, but I think that everybody can find a piece of their story somewhere in my book.”
