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.
