Queen Mary: Up Close and Personal

Mary Wilson, co-founder of the Original Supremes headed the celebrity panel of
Judges for the 2008 Miss Black USA Pageant held in Las Vegas. Roll out the red carpet... Queen Mary is as close to royalty as you can get. She is one class act.

Aside from being co-founder of the Original Supremes, she paved the way for so many young women behind her. Queen Mary, thank you for never giving up on your dreams.

The Queen of Daytime Breaks New Ground

Dream BIG and you can have your own 24hour Television Network. OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network is set to make its debut in the second half of next year in 70 million homes with cable and satellite, part of a deal announced Tuesday with Discovery Communications. It will replace the Discovery Health network.

The announcement builds a media empire that already includes the top-rated TV talk show, a magazine, a satellite radio network, a Web site and TV movies made under her banner. "This is an evolution of what I've been able to do every day," Winfrey said. "I will now have the opportunity to do this 24 hours a day on a platform that goes on forever."

Born in Kosciusko, Mississippi, Oprah Winfrey was reared by her grandmother on a farm where she "began her broadcasting career" by learning to read aloud and perform recitations at the age of three. From age six to 13, she lived in Milwaukee with her mother. After suffering abuse and molestation, she ran away and was sent to a juvenile detention home at the age of 13, only to be denied admission because all the beds were filled. As a last resort, she was sent to Nashville to live under her father's strict discipline. Vernon Winfrey saw to it that his daughter met a midnight curfew, and he required her to read a book and write a book report each week. "As strict as he was," says Oprah, "he had some concerns about me making the best of my life, and would not accept anything less than what he thought was my best." Winfrey says that she's had this vision for 15 years and its hard to believe its now real.
