Oprah Winfrey is getting ready to host a whole new conversation.
On Monday, Apple TV+ announced the TV legend will be launching a new interview show, “The Oprah Conversation”.
Filmed remotely, the show will feature Winfrey interviewing “today’s foremost newsmakers, thought leaders, and masters of their craft.”
In the first interview debuting Thursday, July 30, at 7 p.m. ET, athlete and activist Emmanuel Acho will sit for a two-part episode to talk about his new web series “Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man” and “dive deeper into their raw, unfiltered discussions about race in response to bold questions from white and LatinX guests.”
Professor and “How to Be an Anti-Racist” author Dr. Ibram X Kendi will also be a guest this season. In the episode, Winfrey and Kendi will speak with white readers of his book as they confront the racist ideas they hold.
Winfrey has done a number of projects in her relationship with Apple TV+, including book club segments and a series about the coronavirus pandemic.
