When Denzel came on The Oprah Show almost 10 years ago, Oprah says he inspired her to get involved with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
After five years of planning and building, Oprah opened a Boys & Girls Club in her hometown, Kosciusko, Mississippi. The club is right down the road from where Oprah used to live as a child.

"As a little girl growing up here in this town, I started dreaming about my own possibilities," she says. "So I wanted to build a place here where other children could start creating their own dreams."
With a library stocked with books, a cutting-edge recreation center and a gorgeous kitchen, Oprah hopes her club will help other Mississippi children make their dreams a reality.
