‘Iyanla: Fix My Life Special Report: Healing in Ferguson’ Premieres Tonight on OWN

OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network will air “Iyanla: Fix My Life – Special Report: Healing in Ferguson” tonight at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The special episode of the award-winning series follows ordained minister and spiritual life coach Iyanla Vanzant on an emotional trip to Ferguson, Missouri, as she embeds herself in the local community and works to empower citizens by helping them formulate a plan for peace and healing in the wake of the shooting death of Michael Brown.

Iyanla visits the protest area and memorial, spending hours reaching out to individuals affected by the tragic event to hear their stories and empowering them with ways to move past their anger.

She brings face-to-face Ferguson police chief Thomas Jackson and Michael Brown’s uncle, pastor Charles Ewing, and together they discuss the need for peace in order to give the system time to work. Not stopping there, Iyanla hosts a community discussion with leaders and citizens; sits down in a church minutes from the shooting site with a group of young men, many of whom profess to be gang members; and makes her way at 1 a.m. with community leader and “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s” Tim Norman past National Guard checkpoints and police, to join a peaceful protest.

Later, as a first healing step, Iyanla, surrounded by citizens and community leaders, encourages everyone to choose peace.
