Two of Black America’s biggest business people have teamed up and Essence goes inside of their story in the latest issue. The June issue of Essence magazine features Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry and hits newsstands on May 10th.
“We both know how rare this is. Where else in the history of our African-American culture have two really, really successful people who can do whatever they want said, “Let’s come together and be even more powerful—let’s take it to the tenth power?”—Oprah Winfrey
