Publisher's Summary

From the world of Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls comes the historical novel based on the life of Madam C. J. Walker: America's first self-made millionaire

In Madam C. J. Walker Builds a Business, Sarah Breedlove (a.k.a. Madam C. J. Walker) reinvents and rebrands herself as a forceful entrepreneur whose products still dominate the black hair-care industry today.

Born on the same plantation where her parents were once enslaved, Sarah is the first child in her family born free. When Sarah is just a girl, she learns the value of hard work. She cooks, she cleans, she picks cotton, she does laundry, and she babysits. By 14, Sarah is a wife, and by 18, she is a mother. From the stress of backbreaking labor and having to grow up so quickly, Sarah's hair begins to fall out! Instead of falling into despair, Sarah learns how to take care of her hair and invents her own recipe to encourage her hair to grow.
