Format:  Paperback

Madam Walker was the first free-born child in her family, growing up in abject poverty in post-Civil War America. From humble beginnings, she overcame societal prejudice, family betrayals and epic business rivalries to pioneer cosmetics that revolutionised black hair care, build a beauty empire, and become one of the wealthiest self-made women in America. Not only an astute businesswoman, but a passionate activist and philanthropist, Madam Walker provided jobs and training for thousands of African American women across the country, and used her wealth to fight for equality. Drawn from research by her great-great-granddaughter, this book is a definitive biography of Madam Walker's inspirational life and an illuminating insight into the larger African American struggle in the early twentieth century.
