The Bed-Stuy Beauty Collective, sponsored by the Bed-Stuy Gateway Business Improvement District (the BID), is hosting the inaugural Madame C. J. Walker Leadership Awards at the famous Billie Holiday Theatre on March 19, 2018. The Collective is a committee of experienced professionals in the Personal Care industry that are dedicated to establishing our BID as THE BEAUTY DESTINATION of Brooklyn. The ultimate goal is to promote Bed-Stuy’s Personal Care businesses to draw clientele and bring economic growth to the individual businesses, and the community at large.
Most know Madame C.J. Walker only as the inventor of the hot comb, however, her contributions are much greater than that. She established the first line of African-American hair products and was the first American woman to become a self-made millionaire. Many people are unaware of the culture that the Personal Care industry brings to the Bedford Stuyvesant community. The Collective is recognizing hard-working and unsung professionals in Madame Walker’s name because of her innovation and entrepreneurship.
This is a free event. Seating is limited — RSVP is required at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/bed-stuy-beauty-collective-madame-cj-walker-leadership-awards-tickets-42476301762
