Making Lemons Out of Lemonade: Post-Election Conversation Using the Black-ish Episode ‘Lemons’ as the Prompt

June 2021

On January 11, 2017, ABC  aired the Black-ish episode “Lemons” that adeptly and, some may say controversially, addressed the post-election discussions that are taking place and in many instances, NOT taking place, in workplaces around the world. From our perspective, this post-election episode was delivered in a non-threatening, lightly comedic way. It brilliantly weaves in diverse perspectives on highly sensitive topics and tensions around race and gender that have engulfed us. This particular episode also provides an excellent prompt for a dialogue in your organizations about the post-election climate.
