Tonight, this episode of Real Talk (First Ladies edition) starts off with the third chapter of Dr. Robert Watson, author of The Presidents' Wives: The Office of the First Lady in US Politics (2014). We will explore the following question: What makes first ladies trendsetters? A trend is any form of collective behavior that develops within a culture, a generation, or social group and which impulse is followed enthusiastically by a group of people for a finite period of time. In the case of first ladies, whatever they do or say has an impact on American culture in aspects like dress, personality, role, and the job itself. Our focus would be on Nancy Reagan as she is the case study of first ladyship trends. Tune in as Jacob delves into this portion of this series of Real Talk in-depth to give the conversation about this important topic more substance. We apologize for schedule delays because of life's priorities (e.g., education and work). Other topics are to be announced.
