Madam C J Walker, America’s First Self-Made Female Millionaire
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–

My latest strong heroine, Christiane.
A young beauty flees the French royal court,
Christiane moves into the heart of the American rebel elite.
But one man can’t be forgotten-once her friend-now her enemy.
Will he be destiny? http://bit.ly/2uuxeQA
