Madame C. J. Walker

Madame C. J. Walker, businesswoman, philanthropist, social activist, entrepreneur, chemist, is generally accepted as the 1st female millionaire in the United States.

She was born Sarah Breedlove in 1867 in Delta, Louisiana.

Her Achievements include creating hair-care products for black women and making innovative improvements to the  pressing comb and conditioner for hair-straightening.

On January 28, 1998 the United States Postal Service issued the Madame C.J. Walker commemorative stamp, the 21st in the Black Heritage Series, at a first-day-of-issue ceremony at the Madame Walker Theatre Center in Indianapolis.

"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"

--Madame Walker
