沃克夫人(A'Lelia Bundles)名言

If a CEO takes an interest in you and he happens to be an Asian man, then that's great, but as an African-American woman, you want to make sure that if the executive vice-president of the company is an African-American woman that you get to know her.

如果首席执行官对您感兴趣,而他恰好是亚洲男人,那很好,但是作为非裔美国人的女人,您要确保公司的执行副总裁是非裔美国人的女人

沃克夫人

For some people, success is a zero sum game. They think that if they push other people out of the way, fewer people can compete with them. That's one way of seeing the world. It's dog eat dog. It's, sadly, always going to be there.

对于某些人来说,成功是零和游戏。 他们认为,如果将其他人推开,与他们竞争的人就会减少。 那是看世界的一种方式。 是狗吃狗。 可悲的是,它总是会在那里。

Every ethnic group has a mythology... Until 'Roots'... there was nothing in the popular culture to refute the paragraph in elementary school history class that said, 'Slaves picked the cotton, were happy and life wasn't so bad.'

每个族裔都有一个神话...在“根源” ...之前,在流行文化中没有任何东西可以反驳小学历史课上的一段话:“奴隶摘棉花,很幸福,生活还不那么糟糕 '

Madame Walker was mythologized like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, but I want to show that she was fabulous on her own.

Many people have told me that once they learn of Madam Walker's accomplishments they are surprised, even embarrassed, that they have never heard of her. But they shouldn't be. Her extraordinary story was simply omitted from the history books.

许多人告诉我,一旦得知沃克女士的成就,他们会感到惊讶甚至尴尬,他们从未听说过她。 但是他们不应该这样。 她的非凡故事被历史书完全遗漏了。

I began to discover that, in addition to her stunning achievements, there were flaws as there would be in any person's life. I wanted to tell Madam's story in an honest, frank way.

我开始发现,除了她令人惊叹的成就外,任何人的一生都会有缺点。 我想以诚实,坦率的方式讲述夫人的故事。
