沃克夫人(A'Lelia Bundles)名言

Why is she Mrs. C.J. Walker? It really was a matter of her trying to insist that people respect her, because during that time, white people would call any black woman 'Sally.' 'Aunt Sally.' So this was like... you can't call me that.

她为什么是C.J.沃克太太?这真的是她的问题,她试图坚持人们尊重她,因为在那段时间里,白人会叫任何黑人妇女“莎莉”。“萨利阿姨”。所以这就像。。。你不能这么叫我。

Madam Walker was a master marketer. But her brilliance was in taking it to another level by training women, by traveling, by making very motivational speeches and by providing independent income for women who otherwise would have to be maids and sharecroppers.

沃克女士是一位主要营销人员。 但是她的才华是通过培训妇女,旅行,发表很有启发性的演讲以及为那些原本必须是女仆和农作物的妇女提供独立收入的方式,将其提升到另一个层次。

沃克夫人

She was born Sarah Breedlove on a plantation in Delta, Louisiana, where her parents had been slaves. At 14, she married to get a home of her own, to get away from a cruel brother-in-law with whom she was living. At 17, she had her only child, A'Lelia, who I'm named after.

她出生在路易斯安那州三角洲的一个种植园里,她的父母都是奴隶。14岁时,她结婚是为了有一个自己的家,为了摆脱和她一起生活的一个残忍的姐夫。17岁的时候,她有了唯一的孩子,A'Lelia,我以她的名字命名。

Today, there's no excuse for not learning how to get our financial houses in order. Some of us close our eyes, take a deep breath and say a prayer when it comes to managing our finances.

今天,没有任何借口不学习如何使我们的金融机构井井有条。 在管理财​​务方面,我们中的一些人闭上了眼睛,深吸了一口气,然后祈祷。

沃克夫人

There was a period of 10 years where the conventional wisdom was Black shows don't sell overseas, therefore nobody is interested.

在过去的10年中,传统的看法是布莱克表示不向海外出售,因此没有人感兴趣。

沃克夫人

One of the key things for me about Madame Walker's life is that she really does represent this first generation out of slavery when black people were reinventing themselves, and as a woman who was the first child in her family born free, she was trying to figure out a way, and she moved from Delta, Louisiana.

对我来说,沃克夫人一生中最重要的一点是,她确实代表了第一代摆脱奴隶制度的人,当时黑人正在重塑自己,作为家中第一个自由出生的孩子的妇女,她试图找到一条出路,她从路易斯安那州的德尔塔搬来。
