Season 8 of SUPER SOUL SUNDAY premiered on Sunday, September 27, 2015 at 7pm ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network. In the season opener, Oprah sits down with international humanitarian, Nobel Peace Prize winner and former U.S. President Jimmy Carter for a conversation about faith and spirituality, issues facing our country today and how his global influence grew after he left the White House. As the first evangelical Christian elected president, President Carter opens up about his faith while in the White House and how it guided him in many of his decisions while President. Never afraid to speak his mind, he shares his views on controversies and current headlines affecting America today. He also talks about what he's learned since leaving the White House, where he served as the nation's 39th President from 1977-1981, his strong, guiding force when it comes to peace, and shares never before heard lessons from his spiritual partnership he's found in his almost 70-year marriage to former First Lady Rosalynn Carter. From rural obscurity to world fame, universal respect and contentment, President Carter will take a wise and moving look at what he knows for sure at 91 years old.
