Young'uns Ashanti, Janet Jackson, Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige, and Missy Elliott honor the Legends with a reading of "We Speak Your Names."

Oprah feels the power of Pearl Cleage's words: "My sisters, we are gathered here to speak your names. We are here because we are your daughters as surely as if you had conceived us, nurtured us, carried us in your wombs and then sent us out into the world to make our mark, and see what we see and be what we be, but better, truer, deeper because of the shining example of your own incandescent lives."
