Do you have undefined Netflix plans this weekend? If so, we heartily recommend Self Made, a drama series depicting the life of Madam C.J. Walker – the first African American female millionaire. 

The fictionalized series chronicles the inspiring story of how Walker went from alaundress to building a successful hair care business in the early 1900s.Experiencing hair loss sparked Walker to create hair care products. She initially started with direct sales and then built her business, which included hair care products, a factory, and a beauty school. The series shows the obstacles that Walker faced both professionally and personally. Through willpower and determination, she pursued her dreams and didn’t let anything get in her way. 

The show also reveals Walker’s involvement in multiple areas of her business, from design and sales to mentoring the women she employed. She employed thousands of women and had a vision for her company to empower all women. Walker wanted women to feel beautiful, so they have the confidence to build their success.
