From the late 19th century into the 21st century, technological and cultural advancements transformed the world into a new and modern place. These advancements changed the way people lived, worked, and thought about themselves and the world. The combination of all these changes continues to produce what we know as the modern world. Madam C.J. Walker dreamed of a place where African-Americans were given equal rights and the chance for a better life. Determined to succeed, she worked her way up from washing clothes to selling her own line of beauty products. Her hair-care products, made especially for black women, helped her become Americas first black female millionaire. A philanthropist and an equal rights advocate, her success and support gave hope to others.
