Such an incredible - but well-deserved - honor!
In one of his last official acts as mayor of Chicago, Richard Daley has named the street outside of Oprah Winfrey's Harpo Studios 'Oprah Winfrey Way,' in honor of the talk show queen's work transforming the neighborhood surrounding the building into a safe, thriving area for families and young professionals!
During the ceremony, she was quoted saying:
"Who knew a little colored girl from Kosciusko, MS who grew up on a dirt road would grow up to her name on a street in the greatest city in the world?"
We couldn't be more thrilled for you, gurl!
