Episode Info

In the premiere, a young Rainbow Johnson recounts her experience growing up in a mixed-race family in the '80s, and the dilemmas they face to acclimate in the suburbs while staying true to themselves. Bow's parents, Paul and Alicia, decide to move from a hippie commune to the suburbs to better provide for their family. Their experiences illuminate the challenges of finding one's own identity when the rest of the world can't decide where one belongs.

Critic Reviews for Becoming Bow

"mixed-ish" will not only help them to see kids who reflect their experiences, but it'll also help parents as well, who might feel like their relationships aren't always represented on television.
