From poverty to a $3 billion fortune — the incredible rags-to-riches story of Oprah Winfrey by Kathleen Elkins
As a child, Oprah Winfrey wore potato sacks because clothing did not always fit into the budget of her poverty-stricken family.
Today, Forbes estimates Winfrey's net worth at $3 billion, and she is the only black woman on the publication's list of the 400 richest people in America.
Before she became a media mogul and the queen of daytime TV, Winfrey suffered a tumultuous childhood.
She was shuffled between family members, spending her first few years on her grandmother's farm in rural Mississippi while her unwed teenage mom looked for work, according to the Academy of Achievement.
