Apple TV+ and Oprah Winfrey today announced “The Oprah Conversation,” a new series that will explore “impactful and relevant topics with fascinating thought leaders from all over the world.” It will debut on Apple TV+ on Thursday, July 30, at 4 p.m. (Eastern).
Filmed remotely and incorporating audience engagement, Winfrey will lead discussions with today’s foremost newsmakers, thought leaders, and masters of their craft. In the debut episode, “How to Be an Antiracist,” Winfrey and best-selling author professor Ibram X. Kendi will speak with white readers who confront their own racist beliefs.
“The Oprah Conversation” will continue with a special two-part interview with athlete, commentator, activist, and creator and host of “Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man,” Emmanuel Acho on Friday, August 7. In Part 1, Acho will speak to Winfrey about his web series and take questions from white viewers. Part 2 of the interview will see Acho and Winfrey dive deeper into their unfiltered discussions about race in response to bold questions from white and Latinx guests.
The series will also offer conversations between Oprah and change makers such as Equal Justice Initiative founder and best-selling author Bryan Stevenson. A pivotal voice on racism in America, Stevenson’s story and memoir inspired the acclaimed film “Just Mercy.”
“The Oprah Conversation” will premiere alongside “Oprah Talks COVID-19” and “Oprah’s Book Club,” now streaming in more than 100 countries on Apple TV+.
