  • Madam C. J. Walker -Allyson Azenon
  • Madam C. J. Walker (1867-1919) was lauded as “the first black woman millionaire in America” for her successful line of hair care products.
  • Born Sarah Breedlove, she was widowed by age 20 and took work as a laundress.
  • After seeking treatment for hair loss, she developed the “Walker system” and sold her homemade products directly to black women.
  • A talent for self-promotion helped build a booming enterprise, and she spent lavishly on luxurious homes.
  • Walker also funded scholarships for women at the Tuskegee Institute and donated large sums to the NAACP, the black YMCA and dozens of other charities.
  • She did a lot with her life, but sadly died at the age of 51 (1876-1919)
