If the Netflix series Self Made piqued your interest about Madam C.J. Walker, you can learn interesting facts about this pioneer directly from her great-great-granddaughter and biographer A’Lelia Bundles.

“I’m really eager to talk about the facts of Madam Walker’s life and the five decades of research I’ve done about her and A’Lelia Walker,” Bundles says.

Bundle’s biography of Madam Walker, On Her Own Ground, a New York Times Notable Book and best-seller, has been reissued under the title Self Made to coincide with the release of the fictionalized four-part series. She is also completing her fifth book, The Joy Goddess of Harlem: A’Lelia Walker and the Harlem Renaissance, which focuses on her grandmother and will be published next year.

Bundles will answer your questions at 8 p.m. today on Instagram Live (@aleliabundles) and at 11 a.m. Saturday on Facebook Live (@aleliabundles.author). You can submit questions in advance on her social media pages.
