OWN ANNOUNCES PREMIERE DATE FOR THE SPECIAL PRESENTATION OF OWN SPOTLIGHT: "(IN)VISIBLE PORTRAITS" FROM THOUGHT LEADER, STORYTELLER AND FILMMAKER OGE EGBUONU

Documentary is a Powerful Celebration of Black Women Sharing Their Stories of Struggle and Resilience

LOS ANGELES - OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network has announced Tuesday, March 2 at 9 p.m. ET/PT (following "Queen Sugar" at 8 p.m. ET/PT) as the premiere date for the evocative documentary film "OWN Spotlight: (In)Visible Portraits" from thought leader, artist and storyteller Oge Egbuonu. Nearly three years in the making, Oge's directorial debut (In)Visible Portraits is a powerful celebration of Black women sharing their stories of struggle, resilience and beyond. The documentary shatters the too-often invisible "otherizing" of Black women in America and reclaims the true narrative as told in their own words. The film illuminates the history of how we got here, dismantles the false framework of the present-day reality and celebrates the extraordinary heritage of exceptional Black women who have come before as well as igniting hope for the next generations. IndieWire described the film as "simply another facet of a story that demands to be watched" and Variety says "the documentary's emotional generosity and mindful elegance impress." The film is described by Oge as a "love letter to Black women and a reeducation for everyone else."

The special is executive produced by Oge Egbuonu and Michael Meyer.

About Oge Egbuonu

Oge Egbuonu is a thought leader and artist focused on disruptive and inspirational storytelling. Her documentary "(In)Visible Portraits" was digitally released via Vimeo On Demand on Juneteenth (June 19, 2020), the American holiday celebrating June 19,1865 when the Emancipation Proclamation was finally read to enslaved African Americans in Texas. Prior to creating "(In)Visible Portraits," Oge produced films like "Loving" (the critically acclaimed film starring Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga about Loving v. Virginia, the Supreme Court case which legalized interracial marriage in the United States) and "Eye in the Sky" at the independent production company Raindog Films alongside co-founders Ged Doherty and Academy Award(R)-winning actor Colin Firth. Oge also previously held a seat on the board of the Diversity Committee for the BRIT Awards, where she collaborated on revamping the voting academy and tackling diversity within the music and film industries.
