小编摘要:奥普拉·温弗瑞曾经在节目中多次谈到:没有马丁·路德·金,就没有我现在的生活。可是马丁·路德·金纪念堂筹建集资之时,这位著名的演说家却拒绝了一百万美金的捐助请求。

导读:美国家喻户晓的脱口秀主持人奥普拉·温弗瑞多次在节目中提到一个伟大的人名:马丁·路德·金,并曾表示没有这位了不起的人权运动领袖,“就不可能有我现在的生活”。

然而,马丁·路德·金纪念堂的抽资方却遗憾地表示,他们曾不止一次向奥普拉,这位众所周知的路德·金支持者请求捐助一百万美金,她却没有应允任何数目的捐赠。他们将数额降低到五十万美金,依旧得不到她的任何回复。而2008年就是在路德·金发表著名的《我有一个梦想》的林肯纪念堂的台阶上,奥普拉录制了一期节目,表达了她对路德·金的敬意。甚至在2006年马丁·路德·金纪念堂动工仪式上她也发表了演说。

整个纪念堂需要资金1亿美元,目前仍有六百万美元没有到位。

Missing: Ms Winfrey was reportedly asked by the memorial on two separate occasions for a financial donation which was not received

Celebrated among thousands last weekend on the National Mall, the dedication of the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. memorial was nothing short in fanfare, yet is reportedly still short of funds -- and not every one of its famed supporters has donated funds.

Missing: Ms Winfrey was reportedly asked by the memorial on two separate occasions for a financial donation which was not received.

The Midas touch of Oprah Winfrey, the multi-billion-dollar media mogul who has dedicated good chunks of her television show and now cable network OWN to Dr King, has passed on the memorial's awaiting hands.

According to the New York Daily News, Ms Winfrey had been approached more than once for a donation to the project and has repeatedly declined.

Originally asking for a donation of $1 million and receiving no amount in response, she was approached again for a lesser amount of $500,000, they report.

Nothing was given.

But three years ago in 2008, Ms Winfrey recorded an episode of her talk show program on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial where Dr King delivered his 1963 'I Have a Dream' speech.

She spoke on the powerful impact Dr King had had on her life, dedicating that episode to his life and work.

'Nothing that has happened in my life since I was 16-years-old would've been possible,' Ms Winfrey said in a clip of that episode.

'I wouldn't have been in radio. I wouldn't have been on television,' she continued, 'I just wouldn't have the life that I have without Martin Luther King Jr.'

In 2006 she also made time to speak at the groundbreaking ceremony for this same memorial on the national mall.
