I watched Oprah’s Legends Ball tonight on ABC, and I’m glad I did. Those that Oprah honored included Maya Angelou, Shirley Caesar, Diahann Carroll, Elizabeth Catlett, Ruby Dee, Katherine Dunham, Roberta Flack, Aretha Franklin, Nikki Giovanni, Dorothy Height, Lena Horne, Coretta Scott King, Gladys Knight, Patti LaBelle, Toni Morrison, Rosa Parks, Leontyne Price, Della Reese, Diana Ross, Naomi Sims, Tina Turner, Cicely Tyson, Alice Walker, Dionne Warwick and Nancy Wilson.
So many amazing women, so many trailblazers and shining stars in their own right. So many unbelieveable women who were touched by a simple thank you. I was touched and tearful and inspired, and grateful to Oprah for gathering these women to celebrate their lives, especially Rosa Parks and Coretta Scott King.
Did you watch?
