Madame C.J. Walker

Madame C.J. Walker – The First Self Made African American Millionaire

Madame C.J. Walker became a self made millionaire through a hair tonic that she sold.

Madame C.J. Walker has a mansion in the north Bay Area of California.

“I am a woman who came from the cotton fields of the South. From there I was promoted to the washtub. From there I was promoted to the cook kitchen. And from there I promoted myself into the business of manufacturing hair goods and preparations….I have built my own factory on my own ground.” 

Madam Walker
July 1912
