  • Available to stream on the Watch OWN and Discovery Family TVE apps. Both free of charge.
  • Streaming OWN’s YouTube Facebook and Instagram
  • Available on Discovery’s global platforms in more than 200 counties and territories. This is he first time in history a program has simulcast across Discovery Inc’s entire portfolio.

The special is comprised of in-depth conversations with Black thought leaders, activists, and artists. Oprah speaks to them about systemic racism and offers insight into pressing questions: “What matters now?” “What matters next?” “Where do we go from here?”
