Having been born to former slaves, Sarah faced great social and financial difficulties in life, yet determined not to allow obstacles deter her from her goals, Sarah went on to become a successful businesswoman as owner and operator of her own manufacturing company.
An inspiring picture-book biography of a woman who succeeded on her own terms.
Born December 23, 1867, Sarah Breedlove Walker was the youngest and first free-born child of Minerva and Owen Breedlove of Delta, Louisiana. As sharecroppers, their lives were hard, but slavery had ended, and the Breedlove family was free. And if you were free, you could dream.
VISION OF BEAUTY depicts Sarah Breedlove Walker's rise from a bleak world of poverty and discrimination to unprecedented success as an influential businesswoman and philanthropist. Orphaned at age seven, married and widowed by twenty, Sarah was a young mother struggling as a laundress when she began to lose her hair. Through tenacity and faith, she discovered her own cure, founding the phenomenally successful Mme. C. J. Walker Manufacturing Company. Representing a woman's ability to achieve economic independence, Madam Walker offered a vision of freedom and dignity for her people, and became a powerful role model for women and girls of all races and classes.
The story of a woman with the courage to dream--and the determination to build a better life for herself and her race.
