In honor of Black History Month, we here at HQ wanted to commemorate 5 amazing ladies that may go under the radar in the memory of civil rights in America.  1. Madam C. J. Walker (1867-1919)  “I got my start by giving myself a start.”  Born as Sarah Breedlove on a Louisiana plantation to two former slaves, Madam Walker had a difficult early life.
