Oprah Winfrey was the 2018 recipient of the Cecil B. Mille award at the Golden Globes making her the first Black Woman to receive it. During her tribute, many faces were in tears, in awe, and in agreement. Only Oprah could capture a crowd, inspire, teach, and uplift the underserved but well deserved in one speech. Oprah Winfrey delivered the greatest and most important speech of 2018.
Only Oprah Winfrey can receive an honor and make her honor about the people, the world, equality, and convince everyone of the truth, which is, we are all more alike than we are different. During her eloquent speech, Oprah spoke on Women equality, sexual harassment, jim crow, unspoken Sheros, and she inspired everyone to look within. Ending the speech with one of the greatest motivators letting white men in power know, #TIMESUP No more abuse, harassment, and inequality for women, and for people of colour. It’s a must see, I’m sure college professors will be playing this video come Monday morning.
