C.J WALKER According to Wikipedia:
“Madam C. J. Walker (born Sarah Breedlove; December 23, 1867 – May 25, 1919) was an African American entrepreneur, philanthropist, and political and social activist. She is recorded as the first female self-made millionaire in America in the Guinness Book of World Records.
Walker made her fortune by developing and marketing a line of cosmetics and hair care products for black women through the business she founded, Madam C. J. Walker Manufacturing Company.
She became known also for her philanthropy and activism. She made financial donations to numerous organizations and became a patron of the arts.
Villa Lewaro, Walker’s lavish estate in Irvington, New York, served as a social gathering place for the African-American community. At the time of her death, she was considered the wealthiest African-American businesswoman and wealthiest self-made Black woman in America.
Her name came as a result of her third husband, Charles Joseph Walker, who died in 1926”.
