Have you ever heard of Madame C J Walker? She was the first self-made (not inherited wealth) woman millionaire in the US.
This video is just a quick dab of info. If you click the tab above, marked Women Who Made History, I have a longer video that tells much more about this remarkable woman.
Empowering Other Women
Not only did she make a million but she empowered other women to make a living and give them self-confidence in a world and time, that told women they were inferior and without value. This is what I love about America. Even in the time of Jim Crow, an African-American woman was able to pursue her dream, make her fortune and help others. I hope this nation will never lose its economic freedom or any other.
Believe it or not–
-Madame Walker’s products are still being sold. Here’s the Facebook page. Why not drop by and LIKE it? I did.
And here is the website about her company and her story.
Do you know of any remarkable woman that has been overlooked? Tell me about her.–Lyn
