This documentary focuses on Madame C.J. Walker, a Black woman who, in 1910, made a small investment in a company specialising in Black hair and skin care products and realised a dream that made her one of America’s first self-made millionairesses.
The film also documents the life of her daughter, A’Lelia Walker, Black America’s patron of the Harlem Renaissance. Included are interviews with the Walkers’ friends and coworkers and a collection of stills, film, and music from the period.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A.
