Apple Tv+ has struck gold again – this time by partnering with talk show host and philanthropist, Oprah Winfrey for an exclusive interview series, The Oprah Conversation where she will speak with influential newsmakers and people on issues of global importance.
Oprah Winfrey will host the show along with the author of How To Be An Antiracist, Ibrahim X. Kendi will speak with white people about racism in the US in the debut episode which will premiere on July 30 on Apple TV+.
Subsequent episodes will feature notable activist Emmanuel Acho and Equal Justice Initiative founder Bryan Stevenson, whose story inspired the hit show Just Mercy also on Apple TV+.
The show has arrived promptly right when the US is going through one of its most turbulent phases in the fight against systematic racism.
Nine years after ending her iconic talk show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, the talk show host is back on Apple’s turf for this new series along with ‘Oprah Talks COVID-19’ and ‘Oprah’s Book Club’ that is a part of the multi-year deal signed with Apple.
The episodes don’t have a fixed schedule yet and will be filmed remotely due to the current pandemic although they will have audience engagement.
Watch The Opera Conversation premiering on July 30 on Apple TV+.
