(Los Angeles) Following the shooting death of Michael Brown and subsequent unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, ordained minister and nationally recognized spiritual life coach Iyanla Vanzant has traveled to the area to listen to the people who have been adversely affected and to join the community in finding a path from violence into healing.
Breaking from the traditional “Iyanla: Fix My Life” series format, Iyanla is taking her show to the streets of Ferguson for an upcoming special episode of “Iyanla: Fix My Life” to air on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network. The airdate will be announced in the coming week.
The cornerstone of Iyanla’s work on her television show and through her ministry has focused on resolving conflict and guiding people in crisis to move past their pain.
“My heart hurts for the family of Michael Brown and the citizens of Ferguson. In the wake of this tragic death, it is my responsibility as a mother, grandmother and teacher to show my support and to offer the community a chance to share its story with the nation. In addition, I hope to provide a set of tools to begin the healing process while also promoting peaceful change,” said Iyanla Vanzant.
