My speech

My SPEECH

Willie Calloway's insight:

    Three billion dollars is an extradinary amount of money for anyone to come by. When you reach a lifetime accomplishment or goal should the color of your skin be irrelivant ? Oprah Winfrey Is the Richest black women in the world and is the second richest women in the world next to the queen of England. The is a very insparational person for all people of color and a unique roll model. She showed the world that a women of color can achieve anything and reinforced the fact that we are all created equally. 

     When a two people have the same intent on doing something and are intrested in the same goals shouldnt the race of those two people be a non factor ? The number one goal of the Civil Rights movement was to bring the people togther regardless of the race. That is exactly what miss Winfrey did. Oprah attraced all people to her and  The Oprah Winfrey Show when aired allways displayed an extreamly diverse audiance. This showed the world that we can all get along, laugh, talk, and be with each other. As a Civil Rights Activist this is the most important goal. Thank you Oprah !

     Set aside the Unity of all races was the advancement of the knowledge of the black community. Everyone on the Earth has an equal right to be intellegent. Brown vs. Board of Education was not as long ago as people think. It use to be illegal for a person of color to get the same level of eduaction as his or her white counterparts. Oprah Remembered her roots and where we came from. In 2007 she opened a boarding school in Johnnesburg South Africa called the "All Girls Leadership Academy" To remember how things use to be and see the now of it all and how A black person opened a school for other black people is and astonishing feeling and shows that we have made progress along with seeing Barack Obama as president. We have achived and overcame every challenge the world has thrown at us and doing this project has inspired me to be the best i can.
