Oprah Winfrey is known for bringing people together to discuss relevant topics and hot button issues. Yesterday evening, the media mogul took to social media to debut her latest endeavor, “The Oprah Conversation.”
This show will continue her tradition of interviewing influential guests regarding trending issues. Although Oprah ended her widely successful talk show in 2011, she has continued to host special talk show series on her network, OWN, throughout the years. As the nation grapples with issues of race and racism, demonstrations, and protests, Winfrey stated in her tweet that she hoped to have “conversations that unite us-not divide us.”
“It’s time to bring humanity back to the conversation,” Oprah stated with her tweet. According to Deadline, the series will air on AppleTV and debut on July 30, 2020, with an episode entitled, “How to be An Antiracist” with author Professor IbramX. The show will speak with white people who will be challenged to confront their own internal biases and racism. Future episodes will also tackle the subject of race from different perspectives.
The Oprah Conversation is part of a multi-year content deal with AppleTV signed in 2018 and will premiere along with Oprah Talks COVID-19 and Oprah’s book club.
