Apple TV+ and Oprah Winfrey on Monday announced a new series to explore racism and other relevant topics. The goal of the The Oprah Conversation is to offer perspective on a range of topics shaping our world, and reveal gripping stories of human connection.
The topical show is coming in hot, too. The first episode, titled “How to Be an Antiracist,” airs Thursday, July 30.
What to expect in The Oprah Conversation
In the debut episode, Oprah and best-selling author and professor Ibram X. Kendi will speak with white readers who confront their own racist beliefs.
Next comes a two-part interview with Emmanuel Acho, athlete and creator of Uncomfortable Conversations With a Black Man. Part 1 will premier Friday, August 7. Later in the series, Oprah will interview Equal Justice Initiative founder and best-selling author Bryan Stevenson.
The Oprah Conversation follows on the heels of other series Winfrey created for Apple TV+, Oprah Talks COVID-19 and Oprah’s Book Club.
Watching them requires a $4.99 monthly subscription to Apple TV+, but anyone who recently bought a new Apple device can enjoy the streaming service free for a year. There are currently more than 30 shows or movies available or coming soon.
