It was a walk down memory lane for media maven, Oprah Winfrey this morning as she toured her very own exhibit at the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington D.C.
According to The Smithsonian, Oprah’s exhibit entitled, “Watching Oprah,” “aims to explore how the culture impacted Winfrey and how she, in turn, impacted the culture.”
The exhibit starts off in 1954 when the Supreme Court case, Brown v. Board of Education takes place. The display features the significant moments of Oprah’s lifelong journey.
The exhibit then transitions into Oprah’s early years of broadcasting where footage of the icon plays sporting an afro.
Oprah begins to get emotional as she reaches a signature book during the tour where visitors can write messages about how the maven has impacted their lives.
The exhibit will open up to the public on Friday.
