Yesterday, the mayor of Chicago, Richard M. Daley changed the name of the 100 block of North Carpenter Ave to Oprah Winfrey Way. HARPO Studios, incidentally, now sits on Oprah Winfrey Way.


During the ceremony, Oprah said,

“That’s better than an Oscar or an Emmy.”

She continued,

“It is really just a full-circle miracle story that a little coloured girl born in Kosciusko, Mississippi, on a red dirt road ends up with my name on a street in the greatest city in the world, Chicago. So, thank you.”

Oprah shared her love of Chicago with the audience and thanked them for backing her dreams.

‘I just would like to say, `thank you’ to the mayor and also to the city of Chicago for embracing me and allowing me to take a stand and make a stand here in this city. ‘This place is my Tara. Scarlett O’Hara should have known about Chicago.’

Congrats to Oprah. Now that she has a street named after her, I wonder if a “holiday” could be far behind.
