Oprah Winfrey Gives The Smithsonian $12 Million For An African-American Museum
Written by Danny P Ocean on June 11, 2013
Money is truly not a ‘thang’ to a baller like Oprah Winfrey. Oprah is donating $12 million dead guys to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture. The gift is the largest donation to the Smithsonian ever. As a thank you a 350 seat theater will be named in her honor.
“I am so proud of African American history and its contributions to our nation as a whole,” Winfrey said in a statement. “I am deeply appreciative of those who paved the path for me and all who follow in their footsteps. By investing in this museum, I want to help ensure that we both honor and preserve our culture and history, so that the stories of who we are will live on for generations to come.”
You have got to love Ms. Winfrey.
