12/23: First black woman millionaire



This is Madam C.J. Walker (not to be confused with Jimmy "J.J." Walker). She was born to former slaves in Louisiana in 1867. Around the turn of the century she developed a line of hair care products for black women. She became the first black woman millionaire and was soon known to both blacks and whites, traveling the country, speaking at conventions and giving economic independence to black women everywhere. Today would be the 134th anniversary of her birth.

That's pretty neat. I don't know what else to say really, except that I wish I had the monetary equivalent of one million 1900 dollars.

I wish I could say "I get it", but I don't.

the minority. keir (sp? sheesh i don't remember how to spell his name.) and i used to talk about how much in the minority you could be.

black wheelchair-bound lesbian, etc etc.



dave  Monday Feb 4 11:10 PM

Ah! Like in Chasing Amy.

I just didn't catch the whole minority thing.

Actually, females outnumber males now. So I guess it would be...

A gay black jewish handicapped man.

seems like woman will always out number men as long as the men keep killing themselves in wars.

Not just wars. Homicide, suicide, traffic accidents, you name it -- if there's violent death involved, men have the edge. Woo hoo!

And of course the diseases of old age take us faster too, though women are catching up somewhat.
