It looks like Bravo is ready to add to the ongoing conversation about social justice with an upcoming special.
The network announced on Thursday that Race In America: A Movement Not a Moment will debut next month and feature a conversation with several of its stars, including Porsha Williams, Kandi Burruss, and more.
Nina Parker will host the open dialogue between some of the network’s biggest talent, including Garcelle Beauvais, Todd Tucker, Gizelle Bryant, Dr. Britten Cole, Gregory Gourdet, Toya Bush-Harris & Dr. Eugene Harris, Leah McSweeney, Dr. Simone Whitmore, and Braunwyn Windham-Burke.
“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.”
“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,” added Dorothy Toran, president and executive producer of Lauren Grace Media. “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 Bravo talent will 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.
The three doctors on the panel also provide their unique perspectives on race in the medical world. With silence no longer being an option, this pivotal conversation aims to bring about understanding and motivate action in a time of such great upheaval and uncertainty.
Porsha Williams shared the good news on her Instagram.
Race in America: A Movement Not a Moment premieres August 9 at 10/9c on Bravo.
