American Millionaire

American Millionaire

"I have built my own factory on my own ground," are the words spoken by Madame CJ Walker.

I always like to use her life as the bridge from Black History Month to Women's History Month acknowledging the first American woman millionaire was a Black woman who came from the cotton fields.

I am proud of our growth. I stand tall as an African American woman, granddaughter of share choppers from the cotton fields, still here, resilient. Thriving as roses amongst thorns. I honor my History, my heritage and incredible now.

I salute Black History Month and welcome Women's History Month.

Please read up on the life of this great American hero; prepare yourself to learn about another.
