The Oprah Winfrey Show will end a historic 25 year run Wednesday. Producers taped two of the final shows at Chicago’s United Center last week and Channel 2’s Monica Pearson was there.
Pearson knew before Oprah that hundreds of “Morehouse Men” would also be an emotional part of her surprise spectacular.
Oprah is Morehouse College’s largest single donor. Her endowment is worth $12 million.
Years ago, Oprah said her goal was to guarantee 100 young men got their college education. So far, there are more than 400 “Sons of Oprah,” each with an impressive resume.
Bankers, lawyers, doctors and artists, … all of the Morehouse men traveled to Chicago for a reason.
Like dozens of Hollywood stars, they too had a surprise for Oprah.
“We’re thrilled to be part of historic moment, milestone in television history and Oprah’s life and in Morehouse College History,” Morehouse College President Dr. Robert M. Franklin said.
