A Woman of Uncommon Substance


Oprah Winfrey,one of the most exquisite humanitarians of our time, celebrates the opening of the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa. In doing so,she keeps a promise made to Nelson Mandela almost six(6) years ago.

She and a host of entertainment luminaries spent New Year's Eve partying in South Africa. Some of the entertainers that attended and also performed for the New Year's Eve bash were Tina Turner,Sidney Poitier,India Arie,Mary J. Blige,BabyFace,Tyler Perry,...

Every time this writer thinks of what Oprah has done by completing this project and the impact it will have on the lives of so many,I get very full inside.If you do not already love and admire her,then I don't know what to say. She is the example of true wealth, with the heart and soul to match,or quite easily surpass, the billions that she is worth financially.Oh, and what a vastly rich heart and soul... so much so that I'm dubbing her "a woman of uncommon substance."

To read messages from some of the star studded line up sharing their excitement and for further insight into how and why they were inspired by this event,click on the following links:
