Madam C.J. Walker (1867-1919) was one of America's first female African-American millionaires. She was born on a cotton plantation in Louisiana to former slaves and was orphaned by the age of seven. In the 1890's she began to lose her hair and experimented with home preparations to relieve her scalp problems. She sold her own home-manufactured hair care products as Madam Walker's Wonderful Hair Grower. In 1910, the company moved to Indianapolis because of the convenient rail access and a well-established African-American community. Walker was a Bethel A.M.E. member and built a factory, salon, training school and theater on Indiana Avenue across from what is now, IUPUI.
