Adventures in Feministory Mug: Madam C.J. Walker


A child of former slaves, Sarah Breedlove began making and selling her hair and scalp products and soon established Madam C.J. Walker Manufacturing Company to sell them door to door. Her success allowed Walker to open a headquarters and training school in Indianapolis. A pioneer in both direct-sales business and community philanthropy, Walker encouraged her colleagues to be as well versed in civil rights as they were in hair care.

This mug was illustrated by Bitch Media co-founder Andi Zeisler. Our Adventures in Feministory "Innovators" set also showcases Anna Julia Cooper, Ada Lovelace, and Juliette Gordon Low.
