Join The Gist of Freedom as host ILYASAH SHABAZZ talks with A'Lelia Bundles about her latest book,  “Madam Walker Theatre Center: An Indianapolis Treasure,”

A'Lelia turns her attention to the storied Indiana Avenue building that bears her great-great grandmother’s name, Madam C.J. Walker. The four-story, 48,000-square-foot Madame Walker Theatre Center was completed in 1927, eight years after Walker’s death.

Madam C.J. Walker is America's first female self-made Millionaire. 

In nearly 130 pages, Bundles shares rare images from the family archives, highlights of the theater’s history and pictures from local photographers such as John Hurst.
