Madam C.J. Walker Convention Badge
About the Project
In 1917, the Madam C.J. Walker Manufacturing Company held its first national convention of Walker sales agents and beauty culturists in Philadelphia. The conventions, held until the early 1960s, promoted business success and political activism, as well as charitable giving. This convention badge (ca. 1920s) features an image of Madam C.J. Walker.
Help us transcribe information about this important artifact to uncover a fascinating history of Madam C.J. Walker and the history of black beauty culture in early twentieth century America.
