The mini series was “inspired” by the original book “On Her Own Ground” penned by Author, Ms. A'Lelia Bundles . A’Lelia (Madam C.J. Walker’s Great-Great Grand-Daughter) shares the FACTS about Madam and answers so many questions that we have always had about Madam in this book.￼
This is a well written book. I prefer audio books, but I bought the paperback as well because it is FULL of historical facts and GREAT photos and deserves a special space on my bookshelf. It’s a book I want my Grandchildren to read when they’re old enough. As an African American woman in the natural hair business, reading THIS book about the first Black woman Millionaire has caused me to not only focus on my business model, but has created an urgency in me to learn more about the women in my own family.
The overall consensus of the Bookclub was a DEFINITE 5 Star Book! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Bravo, Ms. Bundles!!! I hope we can get another movie that is more factually based on Madam’s amazing journey and contributions.
Don't get me wrong, this is a story that we need to know. So many parts of it are simply amazing. I just wasn't a fan of the writing. I will probably enjoy it more watching on Netflix.

I'm sure her ancestors would be very proud.
I am so grateful for God's great gift to me through you and your family. I won't go into a lot of detail in this post about just how deeply this book has impacted me, but know that it is very significant. So, I hope to help others take a closer look for their own benefit, also, and am glad for this chance to leave a review.
I truly feel that this book should be required reading for every American school child at the middle school level and above. Truthfully, a teacher could easily use an entire semester, or even a whole year, to go through this book in detail with their students and probably still feel they weren't able to fit all of its goodness into the curriculum.
I also definitely feel that homeschool families, like our family, would greatly benefit from a book like this because it helps to tie all of the historical pieces together all in one book.
