I was thinking recently of amazing people in the history of the beauty industry and was reminded of one incredible story. Do you know about America's first female self made millionaire? If not, you should check out the brief video in the link below, done by the Smithsonian. It only seems fitting that I share this woman’s story, as it is currently Black History Month. Some of my favorite things about Madam CJ Walker are that she inspired others within her community, was an activist who financially supported causes she believed in, and gave 2/3 of her net worth to charitable causes at the end of her life.
