Vision of Beauty
Born just after slavery ended, and orphaned when she was seven years old, Sarah Breedlove Walker nevertheless had her dreams. Growing up, she longed for confidence and pride in herself-and she wanted to share this vision with other black women.
Sarah stayed true to her dreams, as she found success in creating hair and beauty products for black women and spent her life sharing her innovations with others. In renaming herself Madam Walker, in founding the Mme. C. J. Walker Manufacturing Company, and in becoming one of the richest women of her time, she established herself as a role model for everyone--proving that if something can be envisioned, it can be achieved.
