Below 2 inspirational business owners Madam C J Walker and John H Johnson.

Madam C. J. Walker (born Sarah Breedlove; December 23, 1867 – May 25, 1919) was an American entrepreneur, philanthropist, and political and social activist. She is recorded as the first female self-made millionaire in America in the Guinness Book of World Records.[1] Multiple sources mention that although other women might have been the first, their wealth is not as well-documented.[1][2][3]

Walker made her fortune by developing and marketing a line of cosmetics and hair care products for black women through the business she founded, Madam C. J. Walker Manufacturing Company. She became known also for her philanthropy and activism.


Established in 1942, Johnson Publishing Company became the largest Black-owned publishing company in the nation. Founder John H. Johnson created several publications designed for Black audiences such Negro Digest, Ebony, and Jet. His creative spirit and dedication to his company led him to become the first African-American listed on the Forbes 400 wealthiest American’s list.
