MILLENNIUM: Screen Time
By 2000, she was starring in the notorious sitcom “Girlfriends”, becoming a television main stay over the next decade. “Black-Ish” propelled her into the limelight in 2014, where conversations around race entered the main-stream thanks to her bold work as Rainbow Johnson, and producer of the show in its later seasons.

Her most recent venture addresses a gap in the market that women of color know too well, and Tracee experience for years while she navigated the beauty-focused worlds of fashion and showbiz. After working on it for 10 years, Ross launched Pattern Beauty in 2019, a haircare line formulated specifically for coily, curly, and textured hair, inspiring women everywhere to embrace their natural texture.
