Megarich Oprah Winfrey has $1 million (GBP555,500) to a Cincinatti, Ohio, museum which has asked her to narrate an educational film.

The $110 million (GBP61.1 million) NATIONAL UNDERGROUND RAILROAD FREEDOM CENTER is being built along the Ohio River and commemorates a secret underground railroad network that helped slaves escape from the American South in the 1800s.

Winfrey will also narrate a short film introducing BROTHERS OF THE BORDERLAND. Other celebrity supporters of the museum include Quincy Jones and Bono.
