OWN Spotlight: Where Do We Go From Here? will are tonight at 9 PM ET/PT and again at the same time tomorrow (June 10). Some of the guests for the virtual event will include Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, Ava DuVernay, David Oyelowo, Rev. William J. Barber II, Stacey Abrams, and more.
The aim of the special is to examine the next steps after the massive and still ongoing protests in support of Black Americans facing against social injustice, police brutality, economic disparity, and doing so with a president that has often appeared to help drive a deeper wedge between Black and white Americans with divisive statements and politics.
The special will also be aired across all of the Discovery Network’s 18 channels in the United States, along with OWN’s YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook channels. The network also intends to air the special across 200 countries around the world.
Along with the two-night special, OWN has put together a landing page for the special that has links to resources and related information for the guests that will join Winfrey for the discussion. Included on the resources page are ways to donate, information about the still-present COVID-19 pandemic, and other related items.
