Oprah Winfrey launches new series with guest Emmanuel Acho.

Former Longhorn and NFL star Emmanuel Acho stars in the two-part premiere of "The Oprah Conversation," which hit screens on Apple TV+ over the weekend.


Acho is a natural fit to kick off the new show by Oprah Winfrey. The two are partnering to publish a book based off his wildly popular social-media series, "Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man."

In the show's first installment, Winfrey and Acho answer questions by white and Latino guests about race and what it means to be Black in America.

"He's answering uncomfortable questions about racism in America and the best ways to keep the conversation going with your family and friends," reads a statement on the show's social media.


"The Oprah Conversation" is Winfrey's newest series on Apple TV+, following "Oprah Talks COVID-19" and "Oprah's Book Club."

In future episodes, the show will continue to explore timely topics with leaders from across the globe. Watch it here.
