With a net worth of $2.6 billion, Winfrey is the richest Black woman in America, topping the list at No. 10.

The television mogul came from humble beginnings in Mississippi and went on to carve her lane in the industry as one of television’s highest-paid entertainers thanks to “The Oprah Winfrey Show” — one of the most successful syndicated television shows — which reportedly drew in roughly 15 million people a day.

From there, she became the first Black woman to own her own production company, OWN Network, and she continues to be a trailblazer for women across the globe.
