In this clip, Oprah speaks with Glenn, a father to a Black son, about the difficulty—and the urgency—with which Black parents prepare their children for the realities of racism, white supremacy and police violence. Watch as they unpack the painful moment when the innocence starts to leave a child’s face as they gain awareness of racial injustice. “You hate to do it. It pains you,” Glen says, “But it’s kind of like, ‘I need you to know how to survive.”
“Oprah + 100 Black Fathers” airs June 30 at 10/9c on OWN.
