Oprah Winfrey: Talk Show Host and Media Magnate presents a brand-new look at the contributions made by Winfrey both to the entertainment industry and to the world, as well as her impact on young people. Winfrey has attained a level of influence and achievement that is rare, even among celebrities. The hardship and poverty 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 television news in Nashville, Tennessee. After moving to Chicago, she reached international celebrity status by hosting The Oprah Winfrey Show. Honored for her excellence in broadcasting and her generosity to others, Winfrey is considered one of the most influential people in the United States today. The final chapter of this volume delves into the legacy of this leader's thoughts and deeds for the new generations of black Americans. This book is an insightful look into the life and accomplishments of a media superstar.
