Just because black boxes aren’t dominating our social media pages and the news cycle has moved on doesn’t mean that there isn’t a focus on the Black Lives Matter movement on Bravo TV. Many of your favorite Real Housewives and stars from Married to Medicine and Top Chef are participating in Racism In America: A Movement Not A Moment, a discussion on current race relations in America.
This is the best line up of Bravo talent since BravoCon.
Joining the RHOA cast members to share their perspectives on the current climate are Real Housewives of Potomac‘s Gizelle Bryant, Real Housewives of Orange County‘s Braunwyn Windham-Burke, Top Chef ‘chef-testant‘, Gregory Gourdet, and Married To Medicine‘s Dr. Britten Cole, Dr. Simone Whitmore, Dr. Eugene Harris & Toya Bush-Harris.
Just so you know, Racism In America producers Dorothy Toran and Leslie D. Farrell said that they chose each Bravolebrity themselves, noting that no one declined the invitation to participate on this panel, as per reports from PageSix.
What to expect:
The “This is unlike any other conversation,” explained Dorothy Toran to Page Six. “You could talk to someone and have a conversation with them for every day for five years and you would never have a race conversation. So I think when you open the door to a race conversation you will be surprised at what everyone says.”
Leslie D. Farrell added, “What’s fascinating and surprising is to hear — and we always think this — when someone is either well off or they’re on television or whatever, well [race-related incidents] don’t really happen to them,” she explained. “We get it that it happens to us, the normal people, the ones behind the scenes, right? So I knew my experiences and Dorothy has hers, but to hear some of their experiences, it’s like, ‘I’ve experienced that!’”
