Media Magnate Oprah Winfrey is hosting a two-night town hall special to deliberate racism in America.
The event, “OWN Spotlight: Where Do We Go From Here?” will air June 9th and 10th.
Oprah stated, “I’ve been having private conversations with friends and thought leaders about what’s next and where we go from here,” said Winfrey regarding the May 25 death of George Floyd.
Floyd a black Minneapolis resident, while in police custody, and the ensuing days of protests across the country. “I thought it would be of both interest and service to bring their ideas, concerns and comments into a national spotlight.”
Guests include Stacey Abrams, Ava Duvernay, and Mayor Keisha Lance-Bottoms.
The protests were inspired by the death of George Floyd who died at the hands of four police officers, all of whom have been arrested and charged. Derek Chauvin had his charges upgraded to second-degree murder. The other ex-officers have been charged with aiding abetting-murder in the second-degree.
