We can count on Oprah Winfrey to make sure that Black fathers are given their flowers the way they deserve.
Oprah called in our favorite Black dad — Sterling K. Brown — to host two “OWN Spotlight” specials this week.
Tuesday OWN will premier “Honoring Our Kings: Celebrating Black Fatherhood,” a two-hour special Tuesday, June 15 at 9 p.m. ET/PT co-hosted by Oprah Winfrey and Sterling K. Brown. The two-hour OWN Spotlight features conversations with everyday dads, a special message from actor and Emmy nominated producer Kevin Hart (Fatherhood), an appearance by three-time NBA Champion Dwyane Wade (Miami Heat) and a musical performance by award-winning artist Andra Day (The United States vs. Billie Holiday) to celebrate Black fathers everywhere.
Check out a trailer below:
The celebration continues with “Honoring Our Kings: A Black Dad Conversation,” which premieres Saturday, June 19 at 8pm ET/PT on OWN. OWN Honors Our Kings with a Black Dad celebrity conversation hosted by Emmy award-winner Sterling K. Brown, who sits down to discuss the joys and challenges of Black fatherhood with John Legend, D.L.
