Description
"Meet the inventors and scientists of color who changed the world! Born Sarah Breedlove near Delta, Louisiana, in 1867, Madam C. J. Walker was an entrepreneur, philanthropist, and political and social activist. She is recorded as the first female self-made millionaire in America. Among her many accomplishments, she invented a Black hair care method, known as the "Walker system," as a treatment for scalp disorders like alopecia, along with many other Black hair care products. It is time to remember how Madam C. J. Walker's inventions and her contributions changed our society... and our world! ABOUT THE SERIES:Many inventors and scientists of color have made incredible contributions to our modern life. Each volume in this much-needed new series will be devoted to the life and work of one of these inventors and scientists. With a vivid writing style that will use humor as one of its primary ingredients, and illustrated with a combination of real photos and pictures featuring graphic art, each title in this series will describe how these heroes of diverse backgrounds faced the challenges of their times, and how their inventions and contributions changed our society"--Provided by publisher.
