Description

Oprah Winfrey has attained a level of influence and achievement that is rare even among celebrities. The hardship and poverty that she endured during the early years of her life taught her many lessons. By the time she was 20, she had become the first African American and the first woman to anchor the television news in Nashville, Tennessee. After she moved to Chicago, she reached international celebrity status by hosting The Oprah Winfrey Show. Honored for her excellence in broadcasting and her generosity to others, Oprah is considered one of the most influential people in the United States today.This new biography details Oprah's rise to fame and features readable text, full-color illustrations, and fact boxes that detail her vast influence around the world. This accessible book delves into her thoughtful deeds for the new generations of black Americans. This book is an insightful look into the life and accomplishments of a media superstar.
