Oprah Winfrey To Speak With 100 Black Fathers On Racial Injustice In The United States

by Duke Magazine

Oprah Winfrey has taken it upon herself to assess and infer the heightened racial tensions, consciousness, and civil unrest that have engulfed the United States in recent weeks with 100 Black fathers.

The 66-year-old media mogul will host and executively produce “OWN Spotlight: Oprah And 100 Black Fathers” on June 30, where she will be hosting the Black fathers on a discourse of parenting in the wake of the resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement enraged by the police killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor. During the special show, the Black fathers will open up about how they are managing the purported moment and speaking to their children about police brutality and the impact of racial injustice.

“I am honored to bring this conversation to light so we might better understand the emotional toll Black fathers endure, and how they continue to show up for their children, their family and the community,” Winfrey said in a statement.

The likes of Tyler Perry, activist Killer Mike, Courtney B. Vance, and author Shaka Senghor are few of the celebrity guests that will join the special. In addition, viewers will hear from a diverse group of fathers who are married, single, gay, parents of trans children, members of the military, formerly incarcerated, healthcare workers, and stay-at-home dads. The special show will also feature fathers who lost a child to the brutal lynching of the police.

“We are proud to continue curating programming that talks openly about important issues affecting Black lives,” said Tina Perry, president of OWN. “In this special, Black fathers will share their personal stories and feelings in this moment and the hope they have for their families’ futures.”

“OWN Spotlight: Oprah and 100 Black Fathers” will air Tuesday, June 30 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on OWN and streaming for free on the Watch OWN app beginning at 11 p.m. ET/PT.
