2023 Madam C.J. Walker Collection Donation and Barbie Doll

Tuesday January 10

12:00 AM

Help us celebrate Madam C.J. Walker’s Birthday!

Donate $155 in honor of Madam Walker’s 155th birthday and receive a complimentary Madam C.J. Walker Barbie Doll (while supplies last)! Your donation will support the continued conservation of the Madam C.J. Walker Collection at the Indiana Historical Society.

The Barbie Inspiring Women Series pays tribute to incredible heroines of their time. Madam Walker, the successful businesswoman who defied the racial and gender constraints of her time, has become a key part of our national historical narrative. Central to her story is the way she used her personal success to forcibly change long-established business, social, and political networks and foster new ones that empowered African Americans and women.

Please note: $35 of your $155 donation is not tax deductible.
