Today we celebrate entrepreneur, philanthropist, activist and inspiration for Netflix’s latest historical mini-series Self Made, Madam C.J. Walker. Learn more about her incredible life story at History.com

Madam C. J. Walker (1867-1919) was “the first black woman millionaire in America” and made her fortune thanks to her homemade line of hair care products for black women. Born Sarah Breedlove to parents who had been slaves, she was inspired to create her hair products after an experience with hair loss, which led to the creation of the “Walker system” of hair care. A talented entrepreneur with a knack for self-promotion, Walker built a business empire, at first selling products directly to black women, then employing “beauty culturalists” to hand-sell her wares. The self-made millionaire used her fortune to fund scholarships for women at the Tuskegee Institute and donated large parts of her wealth to the NAACP, the black YMCA and other charities.
