Following the Amplify Our Voices series, Bravo is keeping the conversation around race and equality going this August in the upcoming intimate roundtable discussion, Race in America: A Movement Not a Moment, airing Sunday, August 9, at 10/9c.
The 90-minute special will be hosted by E!’s Nina Parker with Garcelle Beauvais, Kandi Burruss, Todd Tucker, Gizelle Bryant, Dr. Britten Cole, Gregory Gourdet, Toya Bush-Harris, Dr. Eugene Harris, Leah McSweeney, Dr. Simone Whitmore, Porsha Williams, and Braunwyn Windham-Burke.
The open dialogue features 10 outspoken Bravolebrities, Black and white, who share their perspectives on race relations today and how we can move forward with hope. With Parker guiding the conversation, they offer their personal stories and thoughts on the Black Lives Matter movement, racial inequality in America, the value of allies, the role voting plays in changing the system, and many other topics. The three doctors on the panel also provide their unique perspectives on race in the medical world.
With silence no longer an option, this pivotal conversation aims to bring about understanding and motivate action in a time of great upheaval and uncertainty.
“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,” Parker said in a statement. “I’m so thrilled to have been a part of this special event that showcases so many different stories of truth.”
The special is executive produced by Kandi, as well as executive producers Leslie D. Farrell and Dorothy Toran; it is produced by Lauren Grace Media.
“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,” Toran said in a statement. “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.”
