Bravo brings home the defining issue of our time – race and equality – in an intimate roundtable discussion, “Race in America: A Movement Not a Moment,” airing Sunday, August 9, at 10 PM ET/PT. This open dialogue features ten outspoken Bravolebrities, Black and White, who share their perspectives on race relations today and how we can move forward with hope. The 90-minute special from Executive Producers Leslie D. Farrell and Dorothy Toran is produced by Lauren Grace Media. Kandi Burruss is also an Executive Producer.
“In this climate, it’s important that we continue to have the uncomfortable conversations, honest discussions, and thoughtful debates that push us to the next level of understanding,” said host Nina Parker of E!. “I’m so thrilled to have been a part of this special event that showcases so many different stories of truth.”
“Leslie and I are pleased to reunite with our Bravo family to curate a conversation so critical to the state of race in America today,” said Toran. “Our sincere hope is that this special offers a unique opportunity to promote greater understanding, motivate learning, and support communities of color. We are especially grateful to all of the talent who lent their voices to such an important dialogue.”
Guided by Parker, the Bravolebrities offer their thoughts and personal stories on the Black Lives Matter movement, racial inequality in America, the value of allies, Karens and their privilege, the role voting plays in changing the system, and many other topics.
