Oprah Winfrey will host a two-night TV town hall addressing racism in America in the wake of widespread protests following the killing of George Floyd.

The event, OWN Spotlight: Where Do We Go From Here?, is scheduled to air June 9 and 10. It will originate on OWN and be simulcast across all 18 of Discovery’s linear networks (including Discovery Channel, TLC, HGTV and Science Channel) and on OWN’s social channels, in addition to the company’s worldwide platforms. Winfrey will speak with a number of black activists, artists and thought leaders about systemic racism and the current state of the country.

“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 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.”
