Transcript of Madam C.J. Walker

(Age) 51
19876-1919 Madam C.J. Walker Introduction: Madam C.J. Walker was born December 23, 1876 in Delta, Louisiana to Owen and Minerva Breedlove, both of whom were freed slaves. She surrefed from a scalp aliment that resulted in her own hair loss. She was a slave when growing up. When Madam C.J. got older she wanted to help her hair loss, so she made hair products. Childhood: She invented a line of African American hair care products in 1905. In 1907, Madam C.J. Walker and her husband traveled around South Southeast selling her products. In 1908 Walker opened a factory, and a beauty school in Pittsburg. By 1910, she transferred her business. Adult Life: What made Madam C.J. Walker important was that she was a hair-care-producer. If we didn't have her, our hair would be a mess. Now in life we thank Madam for the hair products. She made hair-care-products because she lost her own hair and had a scalp aliment. What made my person important: I admire that she made hair products for her hair loss. I say this because if we didn't have hair products it would be hard to do our hair. People now days are happy because of her hair-products. I also admire that she became a millionaire off her hair-care-products. What I admire about Madam C.J. Walker and why: I learned that Madam C.J. Walker made her own hair products and was a millionaire. I also learned that she did what was best for her hair loss so she made hair products to help her hair and other women's hair too. Conclusion: I did my research on Madam C.J. Walker. She is important because she was the first black female to make hair-products and be a millionaire. People should read about Madam C.J. Walker because maybe you could grow up to be something that you want to be. She also inspired people to follow their dreams.
