Back to Madam C.J. Walker

Madam C.J. Walker
By: Tyra D.
Louisiana, Grade 8



Madam C.J.Walker is a desirable choice as an example of a notable woman because she has set a new standard for both African American women as well as other women everywhere. She is still remembered today for her hair care products. And people everywhere are grateful for this woman and her genius. Some people may think she was just the first African American female millionaire. While others may think she is the first American woman to become a millionaire. I am nominating Madam C.J. Walker to the Honor Roll because she is truly a woman who stood out and defended herself against everyone else. Back then she sent a powerful message to women living back then and that message is still noticed even in the twenty-first century. The only thing stopping us is ourselves. If we put our mind to it we can do whatever we want, as long as we know how to defend our grounds. After all of this the women of today could learn a lot from Madam C.J.Walker.
