Children Ages 6+ • 1.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Listeners will enjoy hearing this account of Sarah Breedlove's remarkable business success during the early twentieth century. Adenrele Ojo narrates the entrepreneur's story with feeling, highlighting the challenges Breedlove (aka Madame C.J. Walker) faced and the opportunities she created--for herself and others. Ojo is especially skilled at creating engaging dialogue that entertains and informs young listeners learning about Breedlove's tough early life (she was the first in her family not born into slavery), eventual success, and desire to enrich her community. Determined to find a hair product for herself, Breedlove ultimately invented and marketed a product for African-American women's hair, which became the foundation of her empire. In this lively narration, Ojo shares fascinating biographical details about Breedlove--and the times she lived in. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2020]
