Headed to the venue! The Nebraska-born 47-year-old was ready to kick off her nine-date You Got Anything Stronger book tour with a reading and QA at the Kings Theatre in Brooklyn

In it, Union recalled a ‘heartbreaking and terrifying’ racist encounter she experienced while visiting the Republic of Croatia back in June 2019.

The L.A.’s Finest producer-star was in Dubrovnik promoting her Spectrum series alongside castmate Jessica Alba during the New Europe Market at the Palace Hotel.

At the time, Gabrielle gushed about Croatia to Dnevnik.hr: ‘Beautiful! Absolutely stunning country, amazing food, beautiful people! Also, I’m a huge Game of Thrones fan, so to walk around King’s Landing made my “fangirl” go nuts. But it was beautiful!’

Yikes! But it all took a dark turn when Union and her glam squad (from L-R, pictured in 2019) – hairstylist Larry Sims, stylist Thomas Christos Kikis, and make-up artist Malika James – decided to visit a local bar featuring ‘Jim Crow memorabilia and Neo-Nazi patrons’

The UCLA grad said the menacing group followed them down the street when they left what she had initially believed was a gay bar.

‘I’ve never experienced that level of hatred and the threat of physical violence,’ Gabrielle told People on Tuesday.

Gabrielle told People on Tuesday: ‘I’ve never experienced that level of hatred and the threat of physical violence. It was such a jolt. And the fear and adrenaline of what happened left us all numb’ (posted Tuesday)

‘It was such a jolt. And the fear and adrenaline of what happened left us all numb.’

Union continued: ‘There are microaggressions and there are all out assaults. That’s what it is to be a person of color in this country. We think we’re post racial but we’re not. And that is beyond disappointing.

‘I don’t think people understand the violence that comes with racism, whether it’s if you’re being chased or you’re having to watch someone wear blackface to collect a paycheck. It’s violent.’  

Morning sunshine! Earlier on Tuesday, the New York Company collaborator looked cozy in a grey and blue cardigan while headed back inside The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel

Dimpled smile: Gabrielle paired the ombré knit button-up with roomy black pants and nude sandals

Busy day: Union had just taped her appearance on ABC panel talk show The View where she chatted with Whoopi Goldberg, Sara Haines, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, and guest host Mary Katharine Ham
