OWN Honors the Civil Rights Movement with a Monthlong Celebration
It was the civil rights event that helped change the trajectory of America forever. This January, OWN honors the 50th anniversary of the historic marches from Selma, Alabama, to the state capital in Montgomery.
The monthlong celebration will include special editions of Oprah’s Master Class and Oprah: Where Are They Now? as well as a special episode of Oprah Prime featuring Selma actor David Oyelowo and the film’s history-making director, Ava DuVernay. Plus, Tamron Hall hosts a retrospective of 25 years of race on The Oprah Winfrey Show. Oprah will also host a gala honoring some of the legendary men and women of the civil rights movement, and OWN will air Light Girls, a new documentary from award-winning filmmaker Bill Duke in which he continues the conversation around colorism.
