Self Made: Inspired By The Life Of Madam C.J. Walker is a forthcoming Netflix drama series, based on the biography On Her Own Ground by A’Lelia Bundles, and tells the untold and highly irreverent story of black hair care pioneer and mogul Madam C.J. Walker (Octavia Spencer – Bad Santa 2, Ma) and how she overcame hostile turn-of-the-century America, epic rivalries, tumultuous marriages and some trifling family to become America’s first black, self-made female millionaire.
This four-part series has a good cast and I’m looking forward to when we actually get a trailer for it.
Self Made: Inspired By The Life Of Madam C.J. Walker is released on Netflix on March 20th.
