Netflix has released new photos from their upcoming limited series Self Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker. Walker, portrayed by Octavia Spencer, was the first female African-American, self-made millionaire. The four episode series is based on a book written by Walker’s great-great-granddaughter, A’Leila Bundles, titled On Her Own Ground: The Life and Times of Madam C. J. Walker. Self Made will follow the true story of Walker overcoming discrimination and betrayal to become a successful businesswoman, social activist, and hair care pioneer.

Blair Underwood joins Spencer as Walker’s husband C. J., and Kevin Carroll will appear as her lawyer, Freeman Ransom. Also joining the cast are Tiffany Haddish, Carmen Ejogo, Garrett Morris, and Bill Bellamy.

The series is set to debut on March 20 on Netflix. Check out the rest of the photos below!

Sarah joined Nerds and Beyond in 2019 to write about her many nerdy passions. With a Masters degree in Marine Biology, many question her decision to move to the desert (aka Las Vegas), but she is normally too preoccupied with teaching them about sea turtles to notice their concern. She refuses to fit in a box and lives her life on her own terms, sometimes in spite of societal norms. She loves to travel any chance she gets, which usually involves seeing her favorite band, Louden Swain. When at home, she enjoys binge-watching tv shows on her "to watch" list, working on craft projects, trying new recipes, and planning more travel.
