Oprah Reveals Inaugural Super Soul 100 With These Chicagoans

Supersoul 100 is a collection of 100 awakened leaders who are using their voices and talent to elevate humanity. All 100 were hand selected by Queen Oprah herself and we are so proud of these Chicagoans/Chicago connected individuals that are amongst the illustrious list that includes Troy Carter, Ava Duvernay, Jesse Williams, Soulcycle’s Elizabeth Cutler and Julie Rice, Arianna Huffington and many more. Everyone on this list is philanthropically involved in some form.

This is what makes me full, fills me up. Is being able to associate myself, this brand, this network with people like you. You are connecting to the world, values, spiritual energy that matters.” – Oprah Winfrey
