Today in History: The First Black Psychic was Introduced

PsychicOn this in 2002, The First Black Psychic was introduced.

Shirley Ajayi was the first African American given a part on a television show as a psychic. The show lasted for about one year in Chicago.

Shirley started her career the minute her predictions came true.

She was renamed ‘Aura’ and hired to do the remaining shows for six months.

Shirley is also a distant cousin to Oprah Winfrey who also was on television in Chicago around the same year 1986!
