Oprah Brings Down The House With The Most Powerful Speech At The Golden Globes

Oprah Winfrey gives an incredible speech and wow, all the feels

The entire Golden Globes was filled with powerful moments, from the parade of black dresses to the impromptu red carpet moments to the powerful acceptance speeches.

Well, one speech stood out - Oprah Winfrey. The entire speech is a must watch, but the part about Recy Taylor literally sucked the air out of the room and brought tears to everyone's eyes.
