A’Lelia Bundles

role model

Sophisticate’s Black Hair goes beyond beauty to turn the spotlight on inspiring women of style and subtance. This is an excerpt from our regular Beauty Insider feature.




A’Lelia Bundles is a natural storyteller. The Harvard and Columbia University graduate has earned numerous honors for her journalistic work, including an Emmy Award for news and documentaries. She has also published many books, including Madam C.J. Walker: Entrepreneur, a biography about the legendary beauty pioneer and self-made millionaire—who is also her great-great-grandmother. In 1998, Bundles led a successful national campaign to have Madam Walker’s legacy commemorated with a U.S. postal stamp. “My message for young people is to seek a career that fulfills your creative passion—not just one that appears to pay well—because the money is never enough when you are unhappy.”

“I want to be remembered as a person who didn’t waste her gifts and who helped others discover their own power.”
