The women represent 3 different generations
Most talk shows, like The View, have a panel of women who are mostly in their 40s and up, so the viewpoints of young women are often not taken into account. In this talk show, Willow, age 17, is able to represent and be a voice for the younger generation. While, Adrienne Banfield-Jones, aged 63, brings great wisdom to the roundtable discussion.
They discuss real issues
In the first episode of Real Table Talk, the women discuss the complexities of motherhood, in a raw and emotional way. In the very beginning of the epsisode, Jada sits down with her husband’s ex-wife to discuss their relationship as co-mothers to Trey Smith.
The show is a positive representation of women of colour
In a Love & Hip Hop and Real Housewives of ATL reality TV world, it can be a real struggle to find entertaining shows that don’t show women of colour in a negative light. Red Table Talk allows us to see ourselves, as women of colour, in a positive and progressive light.
Watch the first episode of Red Table Talk below.
Warning: it’s a tear jerker so make sure that you have plenty of tissues on standby:
