Introducing a new two-part special OWN Spotlight event… “The Legacy of Black Wall Street” tracks the rise of Black Wall Street in Oklahoma’s Greenwood District, up until the 1921 Tulsa race massacre that destroyed the 36-block booming business epicenter. The commemorative documentary shifts the narrative from the massacre itself to amplify the voices of those Black pioneers then who went West to build their American dream.
The special premieres Tuesday, June 1, and Tuesday, June 8 on discovery+, and will then broadcast in primetime the same evening on OWN at 9pm ET/PT.
Oprah Winfrey Network is the first and only network named for, and inspired by, a single iconic leader. Oprah Winfrey’s heart and creative instincts inform the brand — and the magnetism of the channel.
Winfrey provides leadership in programming and attracts superstar talent to join her in primetime, building a global community of like-minded viewers and leading that community to connect on social media and beyond. OWN is a singular destination on cable. Depth with edge. Heart. Star power. Connection. And endless possibilities.
