    BONUS EPISODE: King Pleasure: Parallel Modeling ft. Jeanine Heriveaux & Lisane Basquiat

    For the first time ever the Basquiat family has opened the estate’s vault and given us the opportunity to see hundreds of never before seen works from the late great Jean-Michel Basquiat. Led by his sisters Jeanine Heriveaux and Lisane Basquiat, the Jean-Michel King Pleasure exhibit showcases rare and never before seen pieces by the late artist. 
    In a live, intimate conversation with Chelsea cohost of Go Off, Sis at The King Pleasure Exhibit in Los Angeles, Jeanine and Lisane open up about their decision to share more of Jean-Michel’s work, the legacy he left behind, their family and ancestry, and how they’ve carried the legacy forward in their own right as sisters, mothers, and entrepreneurial Black women.

    Chopping It Off & Up ft. Lacy Redway

    Hey Sis, WE'RE BACK!!! During this capsule edition of Go Off, Sis, presented by Dove, we are giving homage to the epicenter of Black hair. Today we're talking about the "BIG CHOP". The “Big Chop” has been a major expression for Black women that symbolizes release, expression, freedom, and discovery. So we think it's time to Cut It Off, Sis! Whether we’re cutting off hair, the toxic stigmas around our hair, or reliving the time that we had to cut it off (not by choice). To add more volume to the roundtable, we have a true beauty maven with a resume, longer than your favorite Cardi B lace front, celebrity hairstylist Lacy Redway. Lacy is redefining beauty standards and advocating for why there needs to be more Black creative talent on set and in the HMU trailer.
