This thought-provoking series features an honest and unapologetic conversation with high-profile members of the Black community about who and what is responsible for ongoing racism in the United States. Participants bluntly discuss how Americans need to change their thinking about what racism is, and understand how the unequal treatment of Black people in the U.S. is a result of a system created and maintained by a power-holding white majority since the beginning of American history. They also note that while these discussions are far from new, the national conversation continues to put the responsibility to cope with, and change, this system on the Black community, instead of addressing how non-Black people can stop reinforcing it. The influence of media and technology on helping to call attention to racism is discussed.

Like all Oprah Winfrey talk shows, the exchange is carefully guided by the celebrity host, who inserts her own points of view throughout the conversation, while panelists discuss white privilege, and the inability of non-Black communities to understand what the Black community is going through. These conversations might seem harsh, but underscore the reasons why previous protests and calls to action failed to dismantle racist political, economic, and social institutional policies and procedures. Its candid and unsanitized observations are what make Where Do We Go From Here? worth watching and thinking about.
