Product Description

Sarah Breedlove Walker was America's first self-made female millionaire, gaining her fortune from a hair and beauty supply line & system she developed. This detailed and engaging biography looks at her rise from the first child in her family born into freedom to her success and advocacy for Civil Rights. Tracing the development of her ideas-from seeing her mother and sisters with their hair in do-rags in the fields, finding that her own hair was falling out from poor nutrition, to selling her products and establishing herself as a successful, philanthropic businesswoman-this biography presents an inspiring look at what hard work can accomplish.

The Candlewick Biographies series presents "portraits of people making history and shaping the future." Illustrated with beautiful full-color pictures, each book focuses on a turning point or defining moment in the life of an important individual in history, the sciences, or the world of art.

45 pages, indexed, softcover. Ages 8-12.
