African American Club – Advisor – Mr. Avalos
It's black history month so when else is a better time to learn about another black icon who you may not know then now? Did you know the first female self-made millionaire was a black woman? Meet Madam Cj Walker, Madam was a child of slaves and her birth name was Sarah Breedlove. As an uneducated, single mom, Madam got money from washing other people's dirty laundry. Due to the stress and unhygienic conditions, Madam's hair began to fall out regularly in chunks. Madam had a horrible scalp disease.
Madam started making remedies to treat her hair. Using the small amount of money she saved, she started her own hair care business. Her business took off as it worked wonders on other people. Her products focus on hair growth and scalp health. Madam used her money to donate to the NAACP and foundations that fought against racism in America. Madam also constantly preached to black women about their appearance even when poor because she believed appearance was everything, especially as a black woman.
Madam passed away at the age of 51 and left behind a fortune of over 1 million dollars and her products can still be found in stores today!!
To fight the gender and race norms during such racist and discriminatory times and become the first female self-made millionaire is amazing for a black woman who comes from hundreds of generations of family who have been oppressed.
There is a movie out now called “Self-Made” which is based off of Madam Cj Walker's life. You can find it on Netflix. Madam Cj Walker is truly what anyone would call black excellence.
