Oprah Winfrey at the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater Opening Night Gala
Oprah Winfrey at the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater Opening Night Gala at City Center in New York.
Oprah Winfrey is loved by many and her success and generosity has of course fueled that fire! Most recently Oprah has been in the tabloids over her girls school in South Africa . Allegedly the girls were physically and sexually abused by a employee which has resulted in an arrest. South Africa has one of the largest rates of child rape in the world. After the incident Oprah provided all the girls with cell phones and her personal phone number should anything arise. She has also been criticized for some “lavish” things at the academy which included a salon for the girls and high thread count sheets (god forbid these poor girls sleep on anything than a dirt floor! ) . Through it all Oprah has embraced the issues with dignity and has managed to keep her academy running to help these girls have better educations. Oprah has also been called one of the most powerful women in America. You go girl!
