Riassunto: "Don’t wait for opportunities to come . . . get up and make them!" said Madam C. J. Walker. She rose from laundry woman to become America’s first black woman millionaire. Born in poverty, Walker set her sights on a better life and made her fortune by developing hair care and beauty products specially formulated for African Americans. As her wealth and influence grew, she also channeled her energies into working for civil rights and social change. This real-life rags-to-riches story comes to life in an engaging narrative by the McKissacks.
From School Library Journal: Gr 1-3-There is always a need for quality biographies and the strength of these particular titles is their breadth of coverage. Not only do the McKissacks profile well-known subjects such as Martin Luther King, Jr. and George Washington Carver, but they also address figures who might not be as famous (such as Madam C.J. Walker and Carter G. Woodson). The texts, which were originally published in the early 1990s, are clearly written and presented in a clean design. Captions for the full-color photos and illustrations provide additional information and the further reading and websites have been updated. Some of the text-heavy pages might present a problem for lower-level readers, but overall, the language is simple and straightforward. Challenging vocabulary is set in a bold font and defined in the glossaries. These introductions will be useful for reports and for independent reading.-Rita Meade, Brooklyn Public Library, NY α(c) Copyright 2011.
