Apple TV+ and Oprah Winfrey have announced an upcoming talk show, titled The Oprah Conversation. The new series stars Oprah herself as she explores impactful topics with thought leaders from all over the world. 

The interview series’ debut episode is titled ‘How to Be an Antiracist’, where Oprah and author Professor Ibram X. Kendi speak with white readers confronting their own racist beliefs. The episode will be available on Apple TV+ on July 30 for free. 

The Oprah Conversation will then continue with a two-part interview with Emmanuel Acho, host of ‘Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man’. Part 1 will see Acho speak to Oprah about the web series and take questions from white viewers. In Part 2, Acho and Oprah do a deep dive into raw conversations about race in response to questions from white and LatinX guests.

The series will also feature interviews between Oprah and Equal Justice Initiative founder and bestselling author Bryan Stevenson. Stevenson’s memoir inspired the movie ‘Just Mercy’, which they will likely talk about too. 

The Oprah Conversation marks the third collaboration between the TV personality and Apple TV+, joining other shows like Oprah Talks Covid-19 and Oprah’s Book Club. The show premieres on July 30, 2020.
