Oprah Winfrey Report Abuse
Not only does Oprah host a great talk show, but she built a school in Africa so that children there could get a quality education. Oprah has a sound business mind and a huge heart. She proves that an African American woman can be extremely successful in life and do whatever they put their mind too. Actually, it is for all women in general, but she is a great role model for African American women.
