Netflix Greenlights a Madame C.J. Walker Series Produced By LeBron James and Octavia Spencer
Madam C.J. Walker is the first woman to become a self-made millionaire in the U.S. through her innovations in the black hair care industry. She designed a safe hair care system for black women and supported educating black women on entrepreneurship.
Helming this project is none other than Octavia Spencer, who is both producing and starring as Madame Walker, and get this- LeBron James is the executive producer.
Walker was an avid supporter of financial freedom and implemented a sales agent system that she used to educate other black women on how to be financially independent and entrepreneurial themselves. Her story is one of many amazing triumphs in American history and should definitely be an inspiring series that sparks an entrepreneurial passion in many.
