10th Madam C.J. Walker Awards
More than 1,500 people attended the Madam C.J. Walker Business and Community Recognition Awards luncheon at the San Francisco Marriott March 28, honoring the legacy of the first female African-American self-made millionaire. Walker’s great-great-granddaughter, A’Lelia Bundles, was on hand to watch as four women from the community were honored for exhibiting the same entrepreneurial spirit and community values that made Madam C.J. so unique. The event was sponsored by the Oakland chapter of 100 Black Women Inc. www.onehundredblackwomen.com. Photography by Alexis Levesque.
