Inspired By: Madam CJ Walker
I want you to understand that your first duty is to humanity. I want others to look at us and see that we care not just about ourselves but about others.
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.
America doesn’t respect anything but money. What our people need is a few millionaires.
Madam Walker was the first U.S. female self-made millionaire, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and social activist. Her life and business is currently in development as a television series.
