Oprah Donates $12M to Smithsonian Museum
(CNN) – Oprah Winfrey has donated 12-million-dollars to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture.
This follows Winfrey’s one million dollar donation in 2007.
In honor of her gift, the museum’s theater will be named after Winfrey.
