Oprah Winfrey

Talk show host Oprah Winfrey changed the way modern television audiences view African-American women. After an abusive childhood in the deep south, Winfrey became Nashville’s first black TV correspondent in 1973. She began filming the “Oprah Winfrey Show” in 1984 and has consistently topped lists as one of the most powerful women in America ever since. (AP Photo/John Amis)
