Yes, this should inspire black women because someone has been able to reach the top. At the same time, this does not mean that racism is over. This woman is one in a million and more black women should be able to reach the same heights as her. Hopefully more people will try.
Does it have to be only black women? Why cant it be all women? We all have to inspire one another as people not just race there are many of women and men out there of all color and race that are very inspiring people, like Jesus was Jewish, Martin Luther King was black, Joan of Arc was white, and Jesus being number one of all, thats all i can think of there are many many more
Sarah Breedlove Walker is an inspiration for everyone, black women included. Her rise to riches is certainly inspiring, particularly given the racism and sexism of her era. Most inspiring, though, is the fact that she gave back to her community. She provided quality jobs for other black women, funded scholarships, and donated to anti-lynching campaigns.
She should be an inspiration to all women no matter their race! She came from nothing, believed in herself, and turned into a very successful business woman. You have to have training and some sort of education to know what it takes to be a successful business woman, it doesn't fall into your lap, it is earned!
Yes, the fact that the first self-made female millionaire in the United States was a black woman should inspire black women, teens, and girls. It shows that anybody is capable of reaching big goals regardless of race, gender, socioeconomic status, or other factors. This can be covered in history classes in order to inspire more black females as well as everyone.
