Richest Black Woman in the World

By on September 9, 2012 in ArticlesEntertainment

Who is the richest black woman in the world? A few weeks back we took a look at the richest black people on the planet and discovered that out of the top 1000 wealthiest people in the world today, only seven are black and only one is a woman. That woman is Oprah Winfrey, whose $2.7 billion net worth makes her the 5th richest black person alive and the #1 richest black woman in the world! And if that's not impressive enough, Winfrey's annual salary is north of $300 million so her net worth isn't going to slow down any time soon.

Congrats to Oprah on her many achievements and we wish her many more years of success! Make sure you check out the following two articles next:
