When Oprah took to the stage to accept the 2018 Golden Globes’ Cecil B. Demille Award, we knew her speech would be awe-inspiring but she took this speech to a whole new level. As the first female black woman to receive the award she reflected on so many important moments that have highlighted the strength of those before us and how far we have come and powerfully, where we have yet to go today. We’re not just inspired by Oprah’s incredible speech but also the display of black dresses of women supporting womens empowerment and the #TimesUp movement, the stories of solidarity backstage and the celebrities who took activists as dates to the gala. It was an incredible moment to watch women and men in unison support such an incredible movement. Watch Oprah’s full speech above.
