Oprah Honored National Freedom Award



Oprah will be granted National Freedom Award in November by National Civil Rights Museum for her work to improve the lives of poor children in Africa

She's a smart, generous and kindhearted person. Running a media company that includes her television show, this female star is being recognized for working to improve the lives of poor children in Africa and helping create a U.S. database of convicted child abusers. Accordingly, it's needless to comment on her being listed as recipient of the National Civil Rights Museum's top honor, mainly for the National Freedom Award. And so, Oprah Winfrey is set to receive the honor by November this year.

Along with her is Paul Rusesabagina, whose heroism in the face of genocide inspired the movie "Hotel Rwanda," to receive the International Freedom Award. Meanwhile, the museum confirmed that a new Lifetime Achievement Award for civil rights activism would be given to actress Ruby Dee and her late husband, Ossie Davis.
