Oprah Winfrey, in the sneak peek of Belief recalled one of her first encounters with colorism as a child, and how the Holy Spirit helped her overcome the devastating ordeal.

“I remember the first night entering into that house and being told that I wouldn’t be able to sleep with my mother and I wouldn’t be able to sleep inside the house, but there was a little porch before you actually got inside the house and I was put outside to sleep there…

I later realized, it was [because of] the color of my skin…

I remember praying on my knees the very first night I had been removed from my grandmother and I don’t remember ever shedding a tear about it because I knew that God was my Father, Jesus was my brother and they were with me,” she said.
