Oprah to Join Lady Gaga at Sanders Theatre

Just when you thought Harvard couldn't get anymore star-studded, it threw Oprah Winfrey into the mix.

Lady Gaga announced Tuesday that Winfrey will join her and her mother, Cynthia Germanotta, in launching the Born This Way Foundation at Sanders Theatre on Feb. 29. The new foundation will aim to "create a new culture of kindness, bravery, acceptance, and empowerment," according to a press release by the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

As if Lady Gaga and Winfrey weren't enough, the stars will be joined by several special guests, including author and speaker Deepak Chopra, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, and Harvard Law School Professor Charles J. Ogletree.

The launch will be co-hosted by the Harvard Graduate School of Education, the Born This Way Foundation, Harvard's Berkman Center for Internet and Society, the John D. & Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, and the California Endowment.
