One of my very favorite people!
Yes, the first black woman millionaire can be found in the Blacksonian!
I am particularly fond of Madam C.J. Walker because she built her business in Indianapolis. I also like her because in the face of racial discrimination she built her own theatre for black people. I’m totally impressed by her business savvy, her ambition, and her advocacy.
Visit the Blacksonian. (National Museum for African American History and Culture).
