    Former New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu joins Oprah for a candid, spiritual conversation about the realities of race, culture and politics in our modern age. He discusses his controversial, headline-making decision to remove four prominent Confederate monuments that stood in the city for more than 100 years. Mitch documents the removal of the monuments in his New York Times best-selling memoir “In the Shadow of Statues: A White Southerner Confronts History.” He also shares personal stories from his youth, including the challenges of growing up as the son of the mayor of New Orleans. (Please note this conversation includes strong language in the context of discussing racism in America.)
