Henson will co-host the new Facebook Watch talk show with her longtime best friend, Tracie Jade Jenkins.
‘Peace of Mind with Taraji’ (working title) is set to go into production later on in 2020. Henson and Jenkins will be interviewing celebrities, experts, and random guests about mental health issues. Interviews with those in the Black community will especially be highlighted on the show.
“I’ve long been a mental health advocate for the Black community and created the Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation in 2018 that has provided resources to thousands of people who are struggling,” Henson said in a statement. “I’m looking forward to bringing this new talk series to Facebook Watch, where I can continue to create conversation around an issue that is near and dear to my heart.”
