The Story of Madame Sara Spencer Washington and the Apex Empire
WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING:
Cheryl Woodruff Brooks brings the amazing story of entrepreneur, educator, and activist Sara Spencer Washington to life with her riveting narrative in Golden Beauty Boss. The compelling book is more than a biography of a plucky figure whose vision and determination in the face of many challenges forged a colossal black manufacturing company, a global enterprise, indeed an Apex Empire that included a huge network of beauty schools and services providing opportunities for African Americans that changed the face of the political economy of America. It is a saga that reminds us of the important social and cultural contexts of African American business--and indeed the changing American concept of beauty.
-- Simon J. Bronner, Dean of the College of General Studies and professor of social sciences and business at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
