For three generations of women, healing is their family business
At a curious corner of the Internet lies Red Table Talk, where three generations of women—Jada Pinkett Smith, her daughter Willow and mother Adrienne AKA “Gammy”—make space for difficult and intimate conversations. For the eccentric celebrity family, healing is their family business.
“You can’t reduce the world to your perspective; at the same time, your perspective is critical to how you see the world,” shares renowned scholar Dr. Michael Eric Dyson on the episode Confronting the Divide Between Black and Asian Americans. At the Red Table, taboo subjects like sexual consent and polyamory are destigmatized. Meanwhile relevant topics, from heartbreak to mental health and race, are deconstructed and talked about candidly with family and friends.
Scour through four seasons of Red Table Talk, streaming exclusively on Facebook Watch, where regardless of race, gender or belief, we all recognize (and confront) a shared humanity. Start with these essential episodes.
