Oprah Winfrey was born on January 29, 1954 in Cosciasco, Mississippi. Her real name is Orpah Gail Winfrey. The midwife who delivered the baby inadvertently switched the letters on the girl's birth certificate. Winfrey denies this information and says that she herself changed her name because friends had difficulty pronouncing it. At the age of 6, Winfrey and her mother moved to the old ghetto neighborhood of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Oprah now lives near Santa Barbara, California.

Parents: Vernita Lee's mother worked as a maid, and her father, Vernon Winfrey, was a miner, then a barber, later a city councilman. They were never legally married. When Oprah was born, her father was in the army and her mother decided to move north. The girl spent the first six years of her life in the rural wilderness, living with her grandmother, Hattie Mae.

Oprah could read from the age of three, taught by her grandmother. Attending school in the suburbs of Milwaukee, the girl began to attend school only from the age of 12, but she already knew how to write. Before that, as a 9-year-old child, she was raped by her cousin. And when Oprah was 14 years old she became pregnant and gave birth to a child who died soon after birth. After that, her mother sent her to live in Nashville, Tennessee, to her father, who attached great importance to her education. There, the future star of American television graduated from high school.
