About Sarah Walker (Breedlove)

I am a woman who came from the cotton fields of the South. From there I was promoted to the washtub. From there I was promoted to the cook kitchen. And from there I promoted myself into the business of manufacturing hair goods and preparations....I have built my own factory on my own ground. ~Madam Walker, National Negro Business League Convention, July 1912
