Self Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker

"100 years ago, Madam C. J. Walker was the richest, self made woman in America. She battled both racism and sexism in a post abolition world. She created an empire of hair care products for black women, and she also employed an empowered thousands of black women across the country. Her story is the subject of a Netflix series called Self Made. Inspired by the Life of Madam C. J. Walker. The show stars Octavia Spencer as Thie, tenacious businesswoman, and Blair Underwood plays her husband. You see him struggle to live in the shadows of his wife's massive achievements. You might know Blair from L. A law dear white people or sex in the city. He also starred in the Broadway production of a Soldier's play. I talked to Blair right around the time. The play had to shut down early because of covert 19 back in mid March, and I started off by asking him why Madam C. J. Walker story is so important. She accomplished something that was just a monumental An extraordinary at the turn of the century in the late 18 hundreds and building this hair care empire Ah, woman. An African American woman, um, during that period of time to to earn that kind of money she did, And as you as you said, she employed and empowered thousands of African American women all over the world, So she was really you know, before Mary Kay or Avon or M Way she was creating distributors. People could have their own businesses and be their own business people at the time, So it was really extraordinary. It was amazing what she created, especially given the times in which she did it. Yeah, the early 19 hundreds. Incredible. So let's take a listen to a clip from the new Netflix series Self. This is you. Yeah, This is you and Octavia Spencer as husband and wife. New hotel downtown. The iron figure you will meet wouldn't go down. There could be a bell half you could do laundry. You don't just plant a seed and expect fruit the next day. Color women here. Just gotta get used to that idea. Somebody was doing ahead as all you know. I always love you big ideas, but I'm not going back to long enough. Now. Wait a minute. No way. Don't all made sacrifices You won't do was best for this family. Yeah, so there's definitely some tension. Attention that we hear that Cliff. How would you describe the relationship between your character CJ Walker and his wife, Madam C. J. Walker. Oh, loving but strained. I say, loving first, because I think that's the most important thing to know about. These two people is that they have great had great admiration for each other and affection. They came together and fell in love before she became successful before she became Madam C. J. Walker. Her name was Sarah. Breedlove. And my character's name is Charles Joseph Walker. So she's known in relationship to him. Mrs. CJ Welcome, Madam C. J. Walker, Um and then when she because of because for intellect and her driving her tenacity and her persistence. She as the brand became more famous, and she built. She was the driving force behind the empire that she built. And it was ah, a lot for him to swallow in tow handle into process on a day to day basis and There's alcoholism involved, and there was a womanising involved. And you know he himself was a man of his times on did not want to be defined by the woman in his life, no matter how much he loved her. It was very hard for him to just find his equilibrium in the midst of all of that. Yeah, and to figure out how to play second fiddle and still, I guess, maintain his masculinity or maintain the image of masculinity at that at that time, that's right and still feel of worth in a value. How did you get yourself into into that head space? That sounds like a really intense head space to get into. Well, you got nothing with acting you just Ah, In the simplest terms, we we played from people and we believe it A cz long as you believe more specifically that that you want this woman to win this woman that you're in love with that you want her to when you want her to succeed. And if you live in that space, and then all these other dynamics coming to play her becoming more successful, who are becoming more famous for becoming more well known, and then her ideas are the ones that really work more than your own. And then you you feel less diminished. But if it's rooted in the fact that you bonded and you came together as a team because of the respect and admiration and love for each other. Everything else kind of falls into place. You've been married yourself for 25 years. Did you draw on any of your own experiences in figuring out the power dynamics of a partnership for this role? Uh, yeah, I think you know you draw them everything you've got, because I was sorry. I should be more specific. I guess I'm wondering like you're a famous person, and I'm wondering if there's anything for you not even in terms of like gender roles. But just just just what it is to be a person who is in the limelight and and also trying to make sure that they're there. Partner comes along. With them and shines just as brightly. Wow, you know, Tommy, That's that's really great question. I I do think what What I've learned is that it's important to make. I find everybody around. You feel of value, but you're asking specifically in relationships. But I think that's important, too. You know that your spouse in that marriage or relationship that has a kind of dynamic Where one person maybe more known to the public. And it's more public facing that that person is aware Of how your mate might feel. My my wife doesn't care doesn't look for it, which is great, So it's a part of its part in parts of what I do as a professional is part of my profession. So there's no conflict in that respect, but But there is a sense of you know that it's important that she knows that she is valued in her world and heard her desires and her passions. And I think that's true for any relationship, so I definitely you know. Use that and this character just understanding that

"Something that brings together so they told friends most famous passage. Probably from Beethoven's fifth is bump bump bump palm so like when you play Thursday night passage that so many people have heard so many times. What did it mean to you my own vision of this famous motives about no famous songs? Payments it's You know those four notes is that it's something that's relentless and breathless and it's actually Beethoven struggling and his Beethoven Not Knowing where this is all going until he finds the solution some thirty minutes later with the last movement which is a major and this is normally my interpretation of it of course with the circumstances it became even more relentless even more breathless and I have to congratulate. Of course all the musicians of the orchestra for being so focused in chairing there. emotions that moments even though there was no audience. And I believe that that's at that point. It was quite clear for all of us that we it's might be the last knows we play together for some weeks or months and This definitely helped inform the performance or charge with I wouldn't say even so fresh vision but more an emotional content. That's just different than any normal but by the way there should never be a normal. There should never be in music any sense of routine or something. That's just the way it has always been for the sake of IT and But this is why we play. Music is to to get these emotions which are hard to put in words We can actually express them in have Hopefully some people inspired the in a kind of Cathartic way by listening to it. So let's hear that passage from Beethoven's fifth that we were just talking about and this is my guest uniqueness again conducting the Philadelphia Orchestra last Thursday night with no audience in front of an empty hall..

Eleanor amplified an adventure series. Kids love here reporter. Eleanor Atwood crafty villains and solve mysteries as she travels the globe to get the big story available where you get podcasts. Or at WHYY DOT Org. We can't go to concerts for now. And my guest uniqueness again can't do his job which is conducting two of the world's Great Music Institutions The Philadelphia Orchestra and the Metropolitan Opera. But I'm pleased to say he's going to spend some time with US last week. After the orchestra learned that it would have to counsel performances until at least April eleventh. The Orchestra decided to go ahead with a final performance. Livestream in front of an Empty Concert Hall unique conducted the orchestra in a performance of Beethoven's fifth and sixth symphonies. If you WANNA watch that performance it streaming on the Philadelphia Orchestra website and on Youtube and thanks to the generosity of the orchestra and in collaboration with whyy the full concert will be available to watch on the PBS VIDEO APP and on W. H. Y. Y. Dot Org and now that the metropolitan opera has cancelled performances. They're streaming an encore performance of an opera every day on their website. Free for everyone like most of us unique can't do what he typically does but one of the things he can do is talk with us about music he things resonates in this moment uniqueness again welcome back to fresh air. Thank you for taking the time to do this. How are well? I consider myself lucky because I'm healthy. Everyone around me is healthy I am with my family here in Montreal and I came back here right after my last performance in Philadelphia on last Thursday and Yes I think you know. Of course we have We are living unprecedented times but Relatively speaking I think we have to count our blessings and I'm definitely you know fit to try and phase these new challenges ahead of us. So I love what the Philadelphia Orchestra and the Metropolitan Opera and probably a lot of other places are doing to. Which has since you can't perform in front of live audiences you're making performances available to the public through broadcast or streaming. So let's start talking about the Philadelphia Orchestra the last time you conduct to do And what you did. Was You conducted the orchestra in front of basically an empty hall so that it could be broadcast on the classical music station in Philadelphia and then also televised on channel twelve the TV Sister Station. Whyy radio where fresh air is produced And and so. What was it like for you to conduct in front of an Empty Hall knowing this. This wasn't a rehearsal. This was the real thing even though there was nobody there. Yeah this is Of course this was one of the most memorable For good and not so good reasons of course Because it's sad circumstances but yet it's it became a memorable event and experience for all of us on the stage to perform in front of an empty hall now We're coming into caters musicians. That's why we do this Some of what we do is very lonely because when we study scores when we practice our instruments It's it's one on one you know. Not even it's one the instrument Or or the score but all of this is ultimately to share and to have all of a sudden component of having an audience so someone who can react immediately physically in the same space as we are to what we do is really unsettling and Immediately I think for musicians and myself. We realized that we were missing. This very important part of what we do. And if there's something that even just a few days without being able to perform for audiences and also when I talked to audience members You know by phone or communicates by a with them through social media. I think that The live experience already. We miss it and we hopefully when this is all over we can resume our Life offering with renewed sense of how important it is for us all to feel like a community. Was It acoustically different for you to record in an empty hall? We know are empty hall by rehearsing in there so it was interesting to see that even though we were wearing concert dress and in concert mode we felt the same acoustics The kimmel center there is an hall than what we normally hear when it's a rehearsal so that was not unsettling what was unsettling was to finish these species and have complete silence. Oh of course. Yeah very very unsettling and and actually quite moving for musicians. It's was even you know. Dad there is because that there was a feeling of of emptiness data was You know also challenging. You know in a way but that's all made us realize how much we need the audience to bounce our energy back and that's a that's something essential for the live experience of music but music and also live otherwise than just live so that is a me. Yeah I think there's a lot to reflect and think it's GonNa take us a few months to also understand exactly All those differences between the the being live with an audience and knowing that there's an audience of course but just not having them as part of the experience immediately physically was last Thursday night. The first time you used wipes on your on your baton definitely the first time I used why he s and I mean We also had to think of the entire they car of the concert. You know all the ritual things that we normally do which is for example when I come in A before and after the performance when I go on stage I have to shake the hand of the concert master but now we had to reflect you know. Of course we can shake hands so We decided to opt for a kind of salute which is very respectful which is more Japanese greeting And so there's no physical contact but yet there's an acknowledgement and You know all these little things that we take for granted that change our and daily life for the moment. So you conducted Beethoven's fifth and sixth year last performance with the Philadelphia Orchestra before having to shut down. Did the music have different meaning for you in the moment? And did you invest a different meaning in it? We always planned these concerts to be the start of a Beethoven Cycle. So this is the two hundred and fiftieth anniversary of Beethoven. And so it's the is. Music is celebrated all over the world. And we've been planning this great cycle full cycle into the delta. That was supposed to go to Carnegie Hall which on this of course is now and cancelled. I was personally to also go to Europe next month to perform record those symphonies by Beethoven With Different Orchestra Chamber Construct Europe now. This of course is still uncertain so Then when this situation happened we did not change program. This is what we were rehearsing planning on playing. And it's I don't know I don't want to read signs of of any kind but the opportunity to connect to our audience in such a moment of shock in the world where all of this is happening and we can't access the concert hall but having it would Beethoven whose you know whose. Music is probably the most popular or best known in the symphonic world And the Fifth Symphony is the representation of destiny and The humankind overcoming in its own destiny and the pastoral symphony which is all about nature and how to reconnect with nature and nature as they provide either in the source of inspiration and hope and we honestly could not have chosen a better program for this. But this is what we add to play. And every musician of the Orchestra I've played the symphonies countless times and in myself included is of course conducted the symphony so often but there was indeed a sense of reconnecting to the purpose of what. Beethoven wanted to tell us through this symphonies and Beethoven was very socially engaged. Composer in his time was very great. Opinions Politically opinions about Also how human nature should Take charge of their own destiny responsibility and their own place in the world and he also because he was having you suffering from hearing loss as a composer as we all know he had To reflect on the struggle and how to live with the disease. So there's a lot in his music that is still so relevant as a society and that meaningful than rich when we have to celebrate.

All want world gives me the confidence every day to be in slay. The demon like the good fight as color woman in a mirror leads to wonderful opportunities him activities Spencer. Welcome to fresh air. Thank you for having me. Can you talk a little bit about Madame? Cj Walker importance in American history. I can I can tell you that. Madame CJ was a a standard bearer in our household that my mother used to inspire my siblings and Myself to strive to be the best that we could be and so I've always known her story but was interesting is her legacy is known in African American culture but not Really by the masses and she built an empire For Hair care for women of color. Black women actually and she was the first self made female Millionaire in this country and the fact that her story is known by the masses I I think it's time that that we we tell it. Did your mother used Madame. Cj Walker hair product. No I I don't even know if they were still around then she basically we. We had nothing and Madame. Cj was born You know Humbly as well and she was a woman of of of purpose. And that's what my mother used to motivate us to to be the best that we can be to reach our potential And so I've always known about her and I've always Felt that her story was Germane to WHO I am As a black woman so I if it she not only did hear growth product. She did other hair products. I think she made hair. Straighten IRS Cosmetics for African American women and so like when you got to Hollywood. Did you feel like that was still an issue? Having good hair products for black women getting good makeup on sets getting good lighting from in in the movies. If you have dark skin absolutely I remember one of the first jobs. I had I you go to set and expect to be made up and there was no makeup for me and From then on I always carry my own makeup. But I don't have to now but I definitely carry my own makeup two sets and yes it is still Pervasive that Women of Color Have to have someone who knows how to to light them. it's something that we struggle with within the profession Madame CJ Walker as we heard describes her as having had a Cain versus Abel relationship with her hair. Did you ever Like struggle with your hair and did that affect your feelings about your chances of becoming an actress. No my mother. I grew up in a household with their six girls in in one boy. So my mom. I used to love to watch her Wash in style my sister's hair and so she taught me how to do that I I didn't have. Kate enable relationship with my hair. I do now because I'm so used to other people doing it but I I didn't back then so you are in the amazing position of having like your first big role when you an Oscar for best supporting in in the help which I haven't seen it is from the point of view of a white journalist writing a book about a couple of African American women in the south working as maids for wealthy white women it was based on a novel by a friend of Yours Catherine docket Who told you you played one of the maids and she told you that this character was based in part on you not on your work but on what on what aspects of you did she draw? Well I didn't know Catherine. She was actually very good friends. With tyrod Taylor The director And writer of the help and I had met her Once and it was while we were in In New Orleans and it was summer and I was on a diet which those two things really really Didn't BODE WELL FOR TATE. Because we were doing a some sort of tour and it was hot in August and so I was actually very haughty and I think as she was re basically writing help she really didn't have a grasp of of who many was physicality and I think she saw this Part of my personality That was you know I'm the type of person am a straight shooter. And that's kind of I think what she drew from. But we didn't really know each other I think it was just a A surface Part of what she drew from. So at. What point did you find out that she drew from you to create the role that you ended up playing I? She asked me to read the manuscript and Let me tell you when you moved to Hollywood. Everybody has a manuscript and it's usually terrible And the manager for the novel for the novel and I she asked me to read it night just kept putting it off and one night. I sat down and read it. And what what how the way she got me to read it. Actually she said well. I wrote this. And I'd love for your opinion and I loosely based many on you and of course. My curiosity was Peaked but I just. It was such a thick manuscript. And I'm thinking if this terrible I do not want to waste my time and of course it wasn't terrible I found it very interesting and I literally read the book in One sitting. And at what point did it get offered to you as a role in the movie adaptation I think tate had always Earmarked that part for me we were. We had been friends for a long time.

This is fresh air. And if you're just joining us. My guest is Octavia Spencer. And she's now starring in the new Netflix Limited series self made inspired by the life of Madame CJ Walker and it will be on Netflix. Starting Friday I want to ask you about your film fruitvale station which is based on the two thousand nine shooting of an unarmed black man. Oscar grant at Bart Station a Bay Area Transit Station in Oakland. Who was shot by a Bar? Police officer you played the young man's mother who feel so guilty guilty after she shot after he shot be the mother had said. Don't drive take the train. It'll be safer and of course he's he's killed on the on the train. Did this story have special significance for you? It did I had a have nephews. And I just remember when I would go home For Christmas backed Alabama I would always worry as they grew up And we'd go out with their friends. I would always get a pit in my stomach and I imagine that most black mothers do have those same feelings And when I read the script of Fruitvale station I knew that I had to play that role Not just for myself Being an aunt but for all black MOMS who Have that pitner stomach. Every time their child leaves the house. The film had such resonance because there was so much going on that related to the film after the film came out. You know Michael Brown was shot. Other young men were shot ways that the whole nation knew about it. 'cause it became national stories. Sometimes it was captured on cell phone of video and awareness of what was happening T you know two young black men who were unarmed and getting shot by police like awareness of the at a really grew especially among white people who weren't as aware of it as African Americans were and I wonder if like. In retrospect that made the film even more meaningful for you because it had such a social and political resonance absolutely I hoped that by telling Oscar. Grant's story that Gun violence and The relationships between young black men and policemen Those types of of instances where violence occurred would diminish But sadly I think I think the impact for me. It felt as if it it. Things escalated And it's it's a club. I think No one wants to be a part of A mother who loses a son to Police brutality or gun violence Yeah I it's one of those projects that will always be special to me. You helped save the film. The film had run into funding. You help rescue it from the funding problems. What were you able to do well? That movie was Made for the budget was nine hundred thousand dollars and one hundred and fifty thousand dollars They they lost one hundred and fifty thousand dollars which was a lot of money if if for a nine hundred thousand dollar budget so what I did was I put in Some money and I called You Know Catherine stock it in a couple of people that I she. She wrote the novel the help the help. Yes and she invested in a couple of other friends and we We made sure that we replace that. One hundred fifty thousand dollars And I also they had me in this amazing hotel I just I just sort of I don't think I allow them to pay me. We just put that money back into the pot And they gave me an executive producer credit Forest whittaker and Nina Yang. Bon Jovi Four For actually helping to bridge the the money gap and. I'm sure nobody regretted it and that everybody got paid back and then some and then some we have one of the issues. That you've fought for in Hollywood is equal pay for women and equal pay for Black Women When did you realize that you aren't getting the same amount that white women doing the equivalent work? We're getting oh that was apparent from the start. I mean you could tell you can tell What an actor gets By what they receive On the sets. No one's actually going to tell you what they make But you you can tell I mean we all knew because they all what happens is when a when a When they're putting together a production they would cast the male lead the white female lead and then they come to you and it's like well we've given out all of our dollars so here ears you know. Here's a change and That's that's usually by the time they get to you. You know that there's very little money and I just knew that I wasn't going to take that you know Much longer especially with what I've been able to achieve as an actress and You know women that I've worked with Viola Davis Garage Hinson Jada Pinkett Smith. I mean we all talk and we started talking numbers and Realize that there definitely was a pay Disadvantaged women of Color receive and with regard to pay And you know we we shared information and and we all learn how to speak up and say exactly what we want in dictate the terms that we need it in our negotiating process. When was the first time you stood up for more actually I always fight for every single job. I oh we always fought for a raise always and we always got a raise every single job because I always prepared to walk away. And and sometimes I've had to walk away because the productions won't budge. I'm fine with say no and I think a lot of people lose the advantage in the negotiating process. If they are not willing to walk away and I'm always willing to walk away Octavia Spencer. It's been a pleasure. Thank you so much for coming on our show. I this is so fun for me. I'm such a fan.

"Despite the fact that I'm in Washington, we're going to leave the news about the special counsel's investigation to the political shows and go somewhere else today, specifically Cupertino California where today apple hosted one of its special events at their headquarters in Silicon Valley. Usually these things are for the splashy rollout of new products. The latest iphone or MAC unveiled on the black stage with dramatic music and slick videos, you had all of that today too. But apple wasn't launching new devices. The company announced a whole new suite of services, a new credit card that works with Apple Pay along an -ticipant streaming TV service, plus a bunch of original content. Marketplace's Ben Bradford reports on how apple plans to compete in the already crowded streaming business one. Way to compete trot out the big names apple announced a slate of original shows and movies with Steve Carell m night. Shamlan Steven Spielberg and Octavia Spencer in Reese, Witherspoon, I create the dimensions of this woman. And now if you were this person imagine if you lived in alcohol apple spending over a billion dollars on new content. But media analyst Michael Goodman at strategy analytics says, the company's got its work cut out for it. That billion dollars is getting them in total about thirty shows. That's nothing compared to what you see interns, original content on Netflix, Amazon, everybody else customers can add HBO Showtime and other channels by paying extra who already does that. But apple feels it has an advantage, and you can play all of it right inside. The apple TV a-. Peter stern apples VP of services. Repeated a theme of the company's presentation. No more bouncing from app to app, he's marketing apple TV. Plus as. As a one stop shop. That's an antidote to streaming fatigue.

Jeff Laos conducted the survey of even talked to one person who said that she uses a spreadsheet to figure out which shows you can watch on which service apples been relying more and more on services to generate revenue the company brought in ten billion dollars to services in the last quarter of last year. And over the next four years the company wants to double that number.
