CINCINNATI, July 9 (UPI) -- Oprah Winfrey has pledged $1 million and her time to narrate a video to support Cincinnati's National Underground Railroad Freedom Center.

In addition to the money, Winfrey, whose participation was announced Thursday, will narrate a short film introducing the center's "Brothers of the Borderland" interactive theater experience, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported Friday.

Winfrey is the latest in a string of celebrities who have pledged their support to the Freedom Center, including Vanessa Williams, Angela Bassett, Muhammad Ali, Quincy Jones, Bono and Danny Glover.

Many of the celebrities are expected to attend the Freedom Center's Aug. 23 opening, though a definitive guest list will not be available until August, the Enquirer said.
