Madam C.J. Walker "Long before Oprah crashed the Fortune 500, there was Madam C.J. Walker, a cosmetologist entrepreneur!" Born in 1867 and the daughter of slaves, Ms. Walker is considered the country's first self-made female millionaire. Walker fearlessly vocalized on many injustices. A'Lelia Bundles is the great-great-granddaughter of Madam C.J. Walker. 


A'Lelia is a busy woman. After spending 30 years in an executive career with ABC and NBC news, gaining an Emmy award as a producer, Bundles is now focused on producing stories of the extraordinary lives of her ancestors Madam C.J. Walker and A'Lelia Walker.
