Why it’s worth your time:

At a time when Twitter mobs pounce and polarize people on complex issues, The Oprah Conversation brings much-needed perspective, nuance, and dialogue.  News makers, authors, athletes and subject matter experts sit down with the queen of interviews to speak honestly about hot-button topics, shedding new light and provoking more reasoned debate.

The first few episodes focus on conversations around race –including a two-part interview with athlete, activist and creator of “Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man,” Emmanuel Acho, which includes questions and dialogue with white and Latinx viewers.  Equal Justice Initiative founder and bestselling author Bryan Stevenson joins later in the series.

The takeaway:

A timely, much-needed series that combines raw honesty with the moderation only Oprah can bring, offering a road map for how to respond — and how to move forward.

Watch it with:

Yourself, your quarantine mates, and your friends/colleagues/relatives with different backgrounds. It’s meant to spark ongoing dialogue.
