Oprah Winfrey is one of the most famous celebrities in the world, and one of the very few to have become a billionaire as well. Born in poverty to a single mother and sexually molested as a child by those close to her, Oprah really had to struggle in childhood, but her sheer perseverance enabled her to lift herself out of those conditions and create The Oprah Winfrey Show, which was the highest rated such show in history and ran for a quarter of a century, from 1986 to 2011. She was considered to be the richest black person in the 20th century and the first black person to become a multi-billionaire. She is also the only woman in our list of richest black people in American and their stock picks. One of the most popular stocks she invested in is Weight Watchers (NASDAQ:WW), a stock she believed in as it helped her lose weight.
