Media mogul Oprah Winfrey has donated more than $1 million to the United Negro College Fund.

Winfrey, 65, made the charitable $1.15 million donation over the weekend during a trip to North Carolina while speaking at Charlotte’s 17th annual Maya Angelou Women Who Lead Luncheon.

The UNCF helps deserving students to attend historically Black colleges and universities.

Winfrey, known for her charitable donations, said last year that she has donated more money to charity in the 20th century than “any other African American.”
