The child of slaves freed by the Civil War, Madam C.J. Walker is known to be the first self-made female American millionaire. She was an orphan at age 6, a mother at 14, and widowed by the time she was 20. The film offers a view of black America from 1867 to the 1930's; it is punctuated with the mucis of Duke Ellingtonb, Cab Calloway and other masters of the era. Newly added to the 1987 documentary is an interview with Stanley Nelson and A'Lelia Bundles, Madam C.J. Walker's great-great-granddaughter as they discuss Madam Walker's philanthropy and social activism, two topics only briefly discussed in "Two Dollars and A Dream."
