While neither forgotten nor ignored, Oprah Winfrey broke more barriers than any other figure in 20th century American history. She rose from an impoverished childhood to host the highest-rated talk show in history and became the richest American of African descent in the country – and the world’s first black woman billionaire. She has been called the most influential woman in the world, the greatest black philanthropist in American history, and the Queen of All Media. Such accolades were hard-won over a career that was marked with controversy, from her advocacy on behalf of the LGBT community to a very public endorsement of presidential candidate Barack Obama in 2008. A story larger than life and infinitely captivating.
