Show Notes

In this second of two opening-day episodes Becky Hennesy invites the young and talented Alexis Franklin to share her life-changing encounter with Oprah Winfrey.

In the summer of 2020, the editors of O Magazine contacted Alexis and invited her to draw a digital picture of Breonna Taylor for the cover of the September 2020 issue. It would be the first time in the history of the magazine that Oprah herself was not on the cover. You'll learn how Alexis responded to the challenge in record time and what it felt like to talk to Oprah after she saw the artwork.

A graduate of Trinity Christian School (Cedar Hill, Texas), Alexis is digital graphic artist and video editor who serves on staff at Trinity Church. She's an African-American in her early 20s who is wise beyond her years. Alexis lives a simple and beautiful life that reflects the artist inside her. She is passionate about Jesus and about leaving her mark of positive change in her generation.
