And she founded a national association for black cosmetics manufacturers in 1917. Before her death, she updated her will, leaving two thirds of future net profits to charity, as well as thousands to several individuals and schools. After her death, her daughter worked to complete a bustling center for the black community that she had started in Indianapolis, where madam walker's business was still headquartered. Opened in 1927, during a time when black Americans were often turned away or charged extra or relegated to second tier service at many businesses, the walker building featured professional offices, a drug store, a restaurant and coffee shop, a theater, a ballroom, and, of course, a salon and beauty school. Now a National Historic Landmark, it stands today as an educational and cultural center, and to quote the madam walker legacy center website. A Beacon of pride,.

Welcome to brain stuff, a production of iHeartRadio. Hey, brain stuff, Lauren bogle bomb here. Entrepreneurs like Kim Kardashian and Rihanna, whose beauty brands have made hundreds of millions of dollars are following a trail blazed by one madam, CJ walker, a century ago. Some reports claim walker was the first black woman to build a $1 million fortune, but Guinness World Records lists walker as the first self made woman millionaire period. For the article this episode is based on, how stuff works spoke with A'Lelia bundles, walker's great great granddaughter, and biographer. She said, for a woman in business and who launched her product before women had the right to vote, is pretty extraordinary. Walker was the daughter of sharecroppers, yet still built a national brand, empowered hundreds of women, and became a philanthropist and civil rights activist. The Netflix miniseries self made, starring Octavia Spencer, is loosely based on her life story. So, who was she? The woman we know as Madame C.J. Walker was born, Sarah breedlove, Anna Louisiana cotton plantation, in 1867. The 5th child of Owen and Minerva breed love, who once had been enslaved, Sarah was the first of her siblings to be born free her early years in Louisiana were full of struggle, and Sarah was an orphan by the age of 7, so she went to live with her older sister and her husband. In 1877, the family moved to vicksburg Mississippi, where young Sarah picked cotton and did domestic work. At age 14, she married Moses mcwilliams to escape the hard labor and her brother in law, who mistreated her. Her only child, lilia, who later changed her name to A'Lelia walker, was born in June of 1885. But when her husband died in 1887, she moved to St. Louis, where her brothers were working as barbers. She started doing laundry, earning a dollar 50 a day, which allowed walker and her daughter to attend school. By the 1890s, her hair started falling out due to a scalp condition. There were very few hair care products designed for women of African descent at the time, and hair loss was a big problem bundle says. So walker searched for a way to cure her hair loss. She tried the pearl hair care line, made by another black woman entrepreneur, and it helped. She sold pearl for 18 months while experimenting with her own hair growing formula. In 1906, she we D Charles Joseph CJ walker, a sales and advertising man in Denver. He helped her with marketing strategies and business ideas, and both these and his name were useful. That same year she changed her name from Sarah breedlove to Madame C.J. Walker and launched Madame C.J. Walker's wonderful hair grower. Bundle said, she was one of the women who was a pioneer in a multi-million dollar cosmetics and hair care industry. In 1906, when she founded her company, there was no national distribution for hair care and cosmetics, like when women, like Elizabeth Arden, created her brand. To promote their products, she and CJ traveled the south for 18 months, selling door to door and doing demonstrations, mostly in churches. Convinced by walkers before and after photos, women snapped up tins of her hair grower for 50 cents apiece. By 1908, walker was earning the equivalent of a $150,000 a year in today's money. And she liked to say there would be no hair growing industry if I hadn't invented it. The exact recipe is lost to time, but the original formula included coconut oil, beeswax, petrolatum, which is similar to petroleum jelly, copper sulfate, precipitated sulfur, and a violet scent. A coconut oil is a favorite in hair care today. But the key ingredient was likely sulfur, which had been used in scalp and hair preparations for years. A 2019 study found that an oral form of sulfur known as MSM supported the growth of healthy hair and fingernails, likely because it boosts the development of keratin, a protein necessary for growing hair skin and nails. But back to madam walker, her walker system included a vegetable based shampoo and glossy, which helped smooth hair pressed with her newly designed hot comb. By 1911, walker incorporated, then recruited and trained black women agents who she called beauty culturists in major cities. However, as walker's success grew, her marriage deteriorated. After she caught CJ in an affair, she divorced him in 1912. By this time she lived in Indianapolis, a Midwestern hub of transit and black American life. She hobnobbed with newspaper publishers, and eventually became allied with influential politicians and activists, including Ida B wells, WEB Dubois, Mary McLeod Bethune, and Booker T. Washington, who was one of the most influential black men in the country at that time. In 1916, she settled in New York's Harlem. Then the epicenter of black American culture. She and her daughter, Ben allele walker Robinson, opened a posh salon featuring sweeping columns, velvet seating, parquet floors, and a grand piano in the lobby. In 1917, walker hosted her first national convention for beauty culturists in Philadelphia. And besides inspiring her agents to sell more, she encouraged them to support charitable causes through the Madame C.J. Walker benevolent association. Walker donated money to black colleges and gave to the NAACP's anti lynching fund. Bundle said, she visited The White House in 1917 with a group to try to persuade president Woodrow Wilson to support legislation to make lynching a federal crime. In the early 20th century, there were hundreds and hundreds of lynchings and African American men were targeted. In 1918, walker moved into the villa lewaro, a mansion she had built in irvington on Hudson, about 45 minutes north of Manhattan. With some 20,000 ft² that's about 1900 m², spread over 34 rooms and expansive views of the Hudson River, the home, designed by African American architect Werner Woodson Tandy senior, was a marvel. Sadly, she didn't get to enjoy it for long. Walker died in 1919 at just 52 years old. In her obituary, WEB Dubois wrote, it is given to few persons to transform a people in a generation. Yet this was done by the late Madame C.J. Walker. Her daughter A'Lelia went on to be the most prominent socialite in the Harlem renaissance, facilitating art and culture in her villa lewaro, and beyond. Though the mansion fell out of the family after allele's death, it was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1976, and has largely been restored by ambassador Harold E Dolly junior and his wife, who lived there from 1993 to 2018. Dolly, a retired investment banker, and the first African American to own his own seat in the New York Stock Exchange had a toy model.

You say it's multicultural reporter could tear a Winfrey explains what the community wanted. Madam Walker Legacy Center has faced financial struggles over the years and the goal of selling part of the property to allow development was to provide more financial stability.

Plans for even more development are now off the table. For several months, The Madam Walker Legacy Center and Buckingham Development had been in communication about a massive project. 7 19, Indiana Avenue. The plan was to use existing space and transform it into apartments and a multi use space. Buckingham officially pulled out of the project last week. I would definitely consider this a win, but we still have much more to do. In a statement, the company told me despite the best intentions of everyone involved The pursuit of a feasible project was undermined by the impact of a once in 100 years pandemic that took away the reasonable opportunity to complete the development. From the start. There's been some pushback with community members even coming together to form reclaim Indiana Avenue. This development which as continue the erasure of black history and black presence on Indiana Avenue representatives say the issue is a development and they empathize with the Legacy center. Knowing its history of financial struggles, but making sure that development meets the needs of the local community was more important. Reclaim Indiana Avenue, said a better option.

"They could have chosen to include me and to listen to my concerns. About things that I thought were implausible for inappropriate and they chose not to not to do that. In many, many instances. My guest, Celia Bundles, author of On her own ground, The Life and Times of Madam C. J. Walker. It's also interesting when you think about the process of getting something to screen. I understand that the Siri's was originally 10 episodes. And that it had shrunk down to four. How did that shaped the way? The Siri's told the story. Madam office. I think I think they had to leave a lot out. And you know, I think anybody that all of the people that I know who work in how he would tell me what the fact that it even got made is a minor miracle on I get that, and there were so many talented people who worked on this Octavia, I thought was great in the roll. Every time she came on the screen, I would just you know for me. It lit up. It made the book come alive, the people who did the costumes and who did the sets and who were really trying to make sure who was so proud to work on the series, so a lot of work went into it. But ultimately it was timing for actors, availability for directors, availability and linnet finally was done. It was only four episodes, so obviously a lot of things got left out. You touched on this earlier, but I want to dive a little deeper into it. One of the biggest changes was this idea of her business rival who was a really real life was named Andy Malone. And then she becomes what they describe a composite character with the name Adam alone. The two letters don't really make that big a difference, Quite frankly, and they were really pitted against each other. And yet you mentioned the character of Adam alone is very fair skinned, and they get into this whole color struck and colorism issue. What was the actual relationship between the two women in really life? And I'm alone and I'm alone and Addy Monroe let my people wouldn't know but back searches for almost 50 years. I knew that there were people who really know Anne Malone's history who were waiting with bated breath to see what was going to happen, so I knew this was going to be a problem. Despite the description of it being a composite character, But in really life, Madam Walker, who would Sarah Breedlove poor washerwoman brothers were barber. She began to learn something about here. Care from them, and then She worked for a while selling product for Andy Malone in ST Louis. There were other products already like it on the market. Cuter cure is one that had been around for decades before that was very similar, so it wasn't a new formula. But Annie Malone had a company. Sarah was her sales agent. She moved to Denver and after she moved to Denver, she'd marry CJ Walker, who knows something about advertising. That part was true. But they seem to have had a falling out. And ultimately, Sarah decided that she was going to sell her own product. Well, both women ultimately were very successful in their business hired, thousands of women were philanthropist. But they went their separate ways. And that's really the end of the story. There wasn't necessarily Yeah, that's him. Now. You know if I dig a little more deeply, there were differences in the way they ran their business. Madam Walker. I have to say, I think was a better marketer. She was a more charismatic person. She was really very canny about who she hired in her executive team. Her attorney heard the manager of her factory was a woman who'd been dean of girls in it. Girl school, her decision to move to New York her international activity, So I think you know if you would compare them side by side. There is a reason that Madam Walker was more well known when she died at the height of her fame. In 1919. But you know, but they were both very successful women. What are some other changes You'd like? The audience to know about when they watch this film. Well, yeah, I think that there's such an opportunity now to show this first generation of African Americans. After emancipation who were founding businesses and educational institutions in a time of great black cultural creativity and music and theater and dance. And that they were just like today's black lives matter. Political activists who were founding organizations. In response to a lynching. So I would have liked to have seen much more about Madam Marcus philanthropy about her activism and to center people around that, who were Part of her inner circle. Women empowering women. That's really her story. The women who reached out to her when she was still a washerwoman and going to ST Paul Ame Church and in the choir in ST Louis. And then the women, the thousands of women she empowered to create a generation of well My guess is Ophelia bundles. She's the author of On her Own Ground, The Life and Times of Madam C. J. Walker. So the film comes out and You start receiving some Interesting and it's a little bit disturbing criticism from people. What did people think? About your involvement once they saw the film, and how did you decide to handle that Incoming fire? You know what people assume It's my book on DH. Therefore this I must be fine with it. I got some attacks from Andy Malone folks, and I'm like, Well, you know, I really did a lot of the original scholarship on Andy Malone when I wrote on her own ground, so I had recognized her as A very significant businesswoman. And there were other people who were upset about the colorism. There were members of Booker T. Washington family who were upset about his betrayal. I know some of them. I shared their concern. My good friend Stanley Nelson and Jill Nelson, whose grandfather was F B Ransom. They're journalists and filmmakers. As many people know their grandfather, FB Ransom with Madam Walker's attorney, He was a much stronger character. In really life, and then the critics really went after it. For the same reasons the same concerns that I had expressed during the scripting process to women pitted against each other colorism that didn't really exist. Some stereotypes that were Perpetuated so but I really as I say in the undefeated article, I really did not want to Few things before the film came out, because I knew how hard people at work and I waited to see what happened. And in fact, it was, as you say, Number one, the number one on Netflix that first weekend But then people on black Twitter like YouTube. Started picking it apart and that they picked apart. The things that I knew would be would be problematic and after I had are right after I saw that other people were having their say on it. I felt more comfortable to come forward and say what I was really thinking. If you could do it over again. What would you do differently?.

The vast majority of people don't want any part of that so that I could call it defunding police. But there are ways to make it happen. And they started at the other night.

Wouldn't you say absolutely and I think that the self may Netflix series? I have seen people saying that. They are destined off their side. Hustles and that. They are inspired as they're sitting at home and you worried about what's going to happen next that they are looking to their entrepreneurial. Spirit yes ma'am yes ma'am and Madame. Cj Walker such the original boss. Baby you know. I had the thrill and purpose to do some work with Mary. Kay last year. And now you're unraveling the story of Mary. Kay Ash to some entrepreneurs that day. I couldn't help but in my opening remarks saying that she inspire me but she harken back to original boss. Babe Madame CJ Walker. They sort of the same business model. Wouldn't you say well? Yes and you know one of the things that I learned when I was doing. My research is that in nineteen seventeen when Madame Walker had her first convention a first sales agents something that had been one of the first group of women. Business Women Getting together at that convention. She gave prizes like Mary. Kay what two years and Mary? Kay was born you. The women who sold the most products brought in the most new agents but she also gave prizes to the women who had contributed the most to charity part of her message to this army up. Two hundred black women who had come from all over the United States the Caribbean in Central America. And she said to them. Your first duty is to humanity. I want others to look at us and realize that it's Walker eight since week here. Not just about ourselves but about others and at the end of the convention the Women in the telegram to President Woodrow Wilson urging him to support legislation to make lynching a federal crime. So yes it was about making your own money becoming economically independent but the bigger message was used that money and that influence to make a difference in community awesome. You know what you said the magic date in there and if this is something you don't want to talk about edit it out but I gotta ask you nine hundred seventeen nineteen eighteen. The Spanish flu. So Madam Wasser deal with exactly what is going on right now with corona virus. How did she manage that? Is there anything that gives you any indication of how she kept her business afloat? One of the reasons that we can tell Madam Walker story with such detail is that we have almost daily letters between her and her attorney between her daughter or attorney and business records. I mean literally tens of thousands of records so I can tell thinking about and in one thousand nine hundred eighteen when the flu was happening. When that Spanish flu misnamed Spanish flu was happening Family Physician Joseph Ward Lost. His son his infant son. She had a coal which he describes a cold throughout the fall of nineteen eighteen and into early nineteen nineteen into letters. It just said I can't shake this call. She never mentioned that she has the flu so I don't know that it was the flu but she was having some health problems and of course she was immuno compromised because hypertension and she had kidney issues as a result of hypertension. So I don't know from a documentation standpoint. She actually had the flu but she did have some kind of cold that she couldn't say. Oh you know what this almost spooky. Because there's so many people here in the United States of America before we even knew that it was going to hit our soil. There were people who were sick. That didn't know what was going on right. That's read a symptomatic. I mean it and you think about all. I've done a lot of research on black soldiers who went to over to Europe during during the war in France and certainly a number of soldiers died of the flu. I haven't seen anything really written about the black soldiers. I wonder if they were in a separate you know. They were separated from the white soldiers. If that had anything to do with I don't know that from a from a research standpoint. Yeah Fascinating Oh my goodness.

government housing but the salvation army one of the things that we're trying to do here in the United States and in places like Australia is move people from government housing into their own homes and we are celebrating because just this week just on Friday the salvation army opened up in Royal Oak Auckland a fifty unit apartment block that is specifically aimed at tenants who had been on the social housing register for up to five years and so these tenants instead of being in government housing there now have their very own homes and the salvation army is helping them to afford live living there making sure that it is at a price point where they can come in and they can build their own home not a house their own home and this is a really great apartment it's got a community garden and green spaces there are apartments for singles and for families and even have what they call bumps basis so kind of social areas if you think about your college dorm where you had places where you could get together and socialize and and get to know each other get to know your neighbors that's what they've designed in this great apartment block so you know what a great idea I know that there is a lot of need even though there are fifty units in here there were seven hundred referrals that were sent to the salvation army there in Auckland letting them know you know these are all people who would qualify for this so you know there's a lot of demand out there we have that in the United States to but a little bit of time or chipping away at it getting people their independence

"Household of entrepreneurs affected the way that you view, black businesses, and maybe your motivation for making this documentary. Well, you talk a little bit about my mother. My father was a dentist who always worked for himself. So that's kind of what I saw growing up was was African American man going to work every day, and and kind of dictating his own hours and working really hard. But, but, you know, having control over his life in that way. So I guess that was kind of as you say in my DNA, and my blood. That's that's how I grew up. That's what I grew up seeing control of one's life is a big theme. And control of one's economics is a big thing that comes up in your documentary as well. Whether other aspects about the black entrepreneurial spirit that resonated with you that made you want to document this history. More thoroughly. Well, I think my first job in the film industry with was with filmmaker William Greaves who was an. Pendant filmmaker one of the first independent African American documentary makers, and I saw him hustling for for for film contracts and boat, but working for himself working very hard, but working for himself. And I think that's all I was also influenced me define what we mean by black business beyond just a business that is owned by a black person in terms of the scope of your documentary. What exactly are we looking at? Well, I think we're looking at two things historically sell for the vast majority of African Americans history since the time of enslavement having your own business really meant selling to your own community. So it it usually meant a small business, but it was a business that was directed at African Americans. You know, you had a store yet a fish market. You might have a small cab company had a hair care and beauty salon. And then it kind of took off and got bigger. So we talk about we do talk about Madam Walker and Annie Malone who had Poro products. The black banks black insurance companies, but these are also businesses that were really aimed at African Americans and African American business. What we see in in? The seventies is kind of a change where African Americans are getting into mainstream businesses are working for big companies. We talk about burns who started out at Xerox as an intern and rises through the ranks Xerox to become a CEO of Xerox and others who are working Ken Frazier. Who's the president of Merck and things like that? That's one of the other aspects of the documentary before we dive in a little further, and here's some clips from the documentary that really stands out is it's not just a story about the struggles that black business people have been through and have those have been plenty. But also about some of these luminaries who a lot of people may not even know really exist that are doing big things in business. Yeah. I mean, one of the things that we tried to do is also talked to people who are in business today. You know, who are doing great things we end the film with a profile of Robert Smith who who has company vista partners is at this moment. I think the richest African American in the country. He has over four billion dollars of personal wealth. We're speaking to Stanley Nelson director of the new documentary, boss. His other works include freedom riders wounded, knee, the murder of Emmett till and miles Davis. The birth of cool one of the other themes in boss Stanley that comes out a great deal is the value of accumulation of wealth, specifically for African Americans as we know for hundreds and hundreds of years, it's been incredibly difficult both because of cultural racism and also legal discrimination legal exclusion to not only accumulate wealth. But also to pass that on to the next generation. And that's another big theme in the documentary. Right. Yeah. I think that that over and over again, we see black business kind of being knocked down are pushed down by discrimination and racism in this country. And there's a few examples of that one. Is Tulsa Oklahoma where African Americans formed what they called the black Wall Street, which was hugely using successful. You know, it kind of rivals the scale of anything we have today. But it was destroyed pretty much in one day of of rioting by white Townfolk, basically because they were jealous of the the business success of black Wall Street. Let me play a clip from boss. This is from Cathy Hughes who was a radio executive multimedia executive who started in radio, and there's a mantra that shows up again and again in the documentary here is that clip of Cathy Hughes from the documentary, boss. You do.
