michellecardons Sarah Breedlove, otherwise known as Madame C.J. Walker, lived a difficult childhood. At the age of seven, she became a working orphan without employment documentation, being frequently mistreated, living in poverty and suffered from a scalp ailment, which led to major hair loss. In 1905, she invented her own line of African-American hair care products called "Madame C.J. Walker.” She eventually began promoting her products and the more people knew about her products, the more they loved it! She expanded by creating her own laboratory and beauty school and ultimately, she founded her own business, Madame C.J. Walker Manufacturing Company. Her business grew and she became the first African-American woman to become a self-made millionaire. She was also extremely benevolent and donated an enormous amount of money towards the YMCA and the NAACP. #Wecanbecauseof Madame C.J. Walker! She has paved the way for modern day entrepreneurs and allowed African-Americans to be proud of their roots.
