Primetime Special Features Tyler Perry, Courtney B. Vance, Michael Render pka Killer Mike, Shaka Senghor and 100 Black Fathers Discussing the Impact of Racial Injustice

LOS ANGELES - Continuing conversations surrounding issues impacting Black lives, OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network announced today an all-new "OWN Spotlight: Oprah and 100 Black Fathers" to air Tuesday, June 30 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on OWN (immediately following an all-new "Greenleaf") and streaming for free on the Watch OWN app beginning at 11p.m. ET/PT. The special features Oprah Winfrey as she speaks with 100 Black fathers about how they are emotionally managing this moment, the urgency of having "the talk" with their children and the dreams they have for their future.

This in-depth special includes conversations with actor, filmmaker, philanthropist and media mogul Tyler Perry; award-winning actor and producer Courtney B. Vance("American Crime Story"); Grammy award-winning rapper, song writer, entrepreneur and activist Michael Render pka Killer Mike; and criminal justice reform activist and author Shaka Senghor ("Writing My Wrongs") as they share how they are responding and speaking with their children about the recent murders of Black men and women, and the deep-rooted systematic challenges they face in their daily lives living in a world that too often sees them as criminals instead of their humanity. The virtual audience features fathers who are married, single, gay, parents of trans children, members of the military, the formerly incarcerated, frontline healthcare workers, professional and stay-at-home dads, and those who have faced the death of a child at the hands of the police.

"I am honored to bring this conversation to light so we might better understand the emotional toll Black fathers endure, and how they continue to show up for their children, their family and the community," said Oprah Winfrey.

"We are proud to continue curating programming that talks openly about important issues affecting Black lives," said Tina Perry, president, OWN. "In this special, Black fathers will share their personal stories and feelings in this moment and the hope they have for their families' futures."

"OWN Spotlight: Oprah and 100 Black Fathers" is produced by OWN. The executive producers are Oprah Winfrey and Tara Montgomery.
