Synopsis

Madam C.J. Walker Entrepreneur by A Lelia Perry Bundles

Madam C.J. Walker, the first woman - black or white - to become a self-made millionaire, started out as a laundress with few prospects. Originally named Sarah Breedlove, she was the first in her formerly enslaved family to be born free. Poor for most of her life, Walker invented a line of hair-care products when she was 37 years old. Eleven years later, she owned and operated her own thriving business, the Madam C. J. Walker Manufacturing Company. She trained thousands of consultants - almost all of them women - who purchased her products for resale to their customers throughout the United States, Central America, and the Caribbean. Through her work, Walker created a legacy of pride and do-it-yourself spirit that still resonates today. Read about this remarkable woman and her legacy in Madam C.J. Walker: Entrepreneur .
