Oprah Winfrey: Media Mogul and Philanthropist

Oprah Winfrey has done it all. The 59 year-old media mogul isn't letting age slow her down. In an interview with MAKERS, the television personality discusses her difficult upbringing, making the most out of a second chance, and turning her remarkable career into a platform to serve a cause greater than herself.

MAKERS is building on the extraordinary archive of stories introduced on MAKERS.com, the "MAKERS: Women Who Make America" documentary, premiering on PBS on February 26th (check your local listings), will tell the story of the women's movement through the firsthand accounts of the leaders, opponents, and trailblazers who created a new America in the last half-century.
