Bill Bellamy Breaks Down the Story of the First Black Woman Millionaire in the U.S: Madam CJ Walker

In a very proud-to-be-black moment, Bill Bellamy joins us on Sway in the Morning to talk about the inspirational story of Madam CJ Walker, the first black woman millionaire in the United States–and the new Netflix show inspired by her, appropriately titled, “Self Made.”

Bellamy reminds us of how regal and fashionable black folks were at that time and got the crew excited for “Self Made” to hit Netflix on March 20.
