The daughter of parents who were formerly enslaved and became sharecroppers, Walker would become a successful entrepreneur and the nation’s first documented self-made female millionaire. Barbie honors her unflinching determination with a collectible doll, complete with a “Madam C.J. Walker’s Wonderful Hair Grower” accessory.

A Black entrepreneur, philanthropist, and activist, her line of hair and cosmetic products for Black women propelled her to become the first female self-made millionaire in America. We’re incredibly honored to add Madam C.J. Walker to the Inspiring Women Collection.


“I wanted to capture Walker in a time in her life where she was selling her Wonderful Hair Grower, at public meetings and private home demonstrations – the true spirit of self-made,” says designer Carlyle Nuera.


This collectible doll wears a full-length skirt and a blouse with beautiful floral print and ruffled details, reflecting her joyful fashion-forward aesthetic. “Some of Walker's favorite colors included rich purples and turquoises, so that's what I put her in,” Carlyle explains.
