Madam C.J. Walker

Madam C.J. Walker

From the cotton fields of Louisiana to the streets of Harlem, the story of this pioneering entrepreneur and activist is like no other. Madam Walker was the first woman to become a self-made millionaire in America and she did it by creating hair products for African-American consumers. Early encounters with the National Association of Colored Women fired her civil-rights activism and she encouraged other businesswomen not only to succeed but to fight racial injustice. Travelling the country to promote her products, Madame Walker eventually built an empire of factories, salons and training schools. Her philanthropic work ranged from donations to the “colored” YMCA to the NAACP’s anti-lynching movement. A leader, fiercely independent businesswoman and generous patron, Madam C. J. Walker’s legacy endures to this day.
