Oprah: Trayvon parallels Emmett Till
Oprah Winfrey lights up the screen as the wife of Cecil Gaines in Lee Daniels' historical drama "The Butler." The film is based on the real life White House butler, Eugene Allen, who served eight different U.S. presidents from the 1950s through the 1980s. TheGrio.com's Chris Witherspoon asked Winfrey about her role in the film and other topics, such as the death of Trayvon Martin.
