A24 has released a brand new WAVES family featurette that features an intimate conversation on parenting in the African American community with Stering K. Brown and Renée Elise Goldsberry.
Brown plays Ronald Williams the “tough love” father, while Goldsberry is the loving and nurturing stepmother.
“I think there’s this fear that a lot of Black parents have, and you have to be twice as hard on your children to prepare them for a world, that will be infinitely harder on them,” Sterling K. Brown explains in the clip.
The feature goes on to show Brown’s character with his son Tyler Williams played by Kelvin Harrison, Jr. as he tries to explain why he’s so hard on him,”I’m trying to give you the tools to succeed.”
” We are often challenged by different styles of parenting, and at the end of the day, we still need each other,” Goldsberry then explains.
