The women who are forced to leave a Napa Valley Wine Train this summer shared their story during their first televised interview on The Real this Tuesday.
A group of Black women were kicked off a Napa Valley Wine Train in August after another guest complained that they were laughing too loud. The women who were members of a book club were escorted of the train and met by police officers, though no charges were filed. The woman have filed a lawsuit that seeks $1 million each for the 11 women who were kicked of the train.
Allis Carr replied, “What we want people to learn is to just be careful of your biases of other people and how you view a group of people when you’re around them. And how you use your power, if you’re in a position of power to make decisions that will then render, and how it will affect other people’s lives. That’s what we want. We want this not to happen again.”
