More Than A Millionaire: The Dynamic Life Of Madam C.J. Walker

Women’s history month is made for pioneering women such as Madam C.J. Walker. Historian Susan L. Hall Dotson hosts this lecture focusing on Walker, a successful entrepreneur, suffragist, philanthropist and supporter of the arts; also, whose parents were once enslaved. “Her hugely successful hair and beauty product industry, based in Indiana, paved the way to financial independence for African American women across the nation,” according to event organizers. This talk, and theatrical performance by Tracey Wynn, is part of the “Permanent and Natural” art exhibition, featuring hair as personal expression. Registration is required.
