A'Lelia Bundles, Madam C.J. Walker's great-great-granddaughter, continues the Walker legacy as a member of several nonprofit boards, including the Madam Walker Theatre Center in Indianapolis, the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University, the Foundation for the National Archives, and the Columbia University Board of Trustees.
Madam C J Walker originally named Sarah Breedlove was the first in her formerly enslaved family to be born free. Poor for most of her life, Walker invented a line of hair-care products when she was 37 years old. Eleven years later, she owned her own thriving business, the Madam C J Walker Manufacturing Company. This book presents her story.
