Lyn Cote Asks–Have you ever heard of America’s First Self-Made Female Millionaire?

Have you ever heard of Madame C J Walker? She was the first self-made (not inherited wealth) woman millionaire in the US.

This video is just a quick dab of info. If you click the tab above, marked Women Who Made History, I have a longer video that tells much more about this remarkable woman.

Empowering Other Women

Not only did she make a million but she empowered other women to make a living and give them self-confidence in a world and time, that told women they were inferior and without value. This is what I love about America. Even in the time of Jim Crow, an African-American woman was able to pursue her dream, make her fortune and help others. I hope this nation will never lose its economic freedom or any other.

Believe it or not–

Lyn Cote Asks-Is God an Author?

I think He is. And a very good one. Just think of all the movies made of his “memorable” stories–Samson and Delilah (could a man be that dumb?–evidently–yes), The Ten Commandments (will we ever forget the parting of the Red Sea or the angel of death?), and what about Queen Esther?
