Oprah Meets Outdoor Afro!


A Joyous Moment at Joaquin Miller Park with Oprah at the Center

Wow! The 10th anniversary year of Outdoor Afro has been filled with so many amazing moments, but having Oprah Winfrey join us on a hike in Oakland among the majestic Redwoods was magical.

Rue got the call just last weekend that Outdoor Afro was chosen, out of all the organizations in the Bay Area, to be highlighted and visited by Oprah on her wellness tour.
Joined by some of Outdoor Afro’s closest friends and supporters, we bathed in the trees while Oprah and Rue both shared the power of nature as a healer and the significance of these majestic redwoods as a source of joy and connection to the land and to one another.
This moment is a culmination of so much dedication and ten years of hard work by so many people. And we look forward to what’s to come.
