Oh yeah… I’ve been feeling for Oprah’s Master Class and it’s returning right on time with Congressman John Lewis on MLK Day! John Lewis was one of the pioneers of the Civil Rights Movement. In this episode… he reflects on his life of activism and his friendship with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and offers wisdom for the ongoing fight for justice and equality.
Season 6 will feature Kevin Hart, Tyler Perry, Lynn Whitfield, Steve Harvey, LL Cool J, Shaquille O’Neal, Usher and Gladys Knight. Be sure to tune into OWN on Monday January 15th at 10 PM EST.
