The preview for the discussion features videos from the summer's Black Lives Matter protests that began in response to the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery. Along with the videos, text flashing across the screen suggests that this program will focus on how to keep momentum from the movement going to bring about change. The text reads: "Now that we have marched and cried out for justice and raised our voices and flooded our social feeds and captured the world's attention. Where do we go from here?"

Like the first installment, Bear Witness, Take Action 2 will feature panel-discussions, musical performances, and celebrities speaking out on issues related to racial inequality.

It is so important that we keep a dialogue about racial justice going beyond any particular moment," she said in a statement received by Newsweek.
