Starting Friday and running through June 2019, the museum will showcase "Watching Oprah: The Oprah Winfrey Show and American Culture" to highlight the media titan's monumental influence over her career. The exhibit will feature video clips, interview segments, movie costumes and personal photographs and journals that showcase how much of an impact Winfrey has had and is continuing to have on American society. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Museum curators Rhea L. Combs and Kathleen Kendrick worked with Winfrey and her team to put the exhibition together and to fact-check background information to ensure that everything is an accurate portrayal of the 64-year-old. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The exhibit will include three sections with the first one detailing Winfrey's humble childhood and early career journey in the 1950s and 60s. The middle section will look at her run with the "Oprah Winfrey Show," which lasted for 25 years and was the highest-rated talk show in history. The third and last section will look at the media titan’s role as a cultural influencer through the movies she’s made, the books she's promoted and her philanthropic work.
