'Two Dollars and a Dream' is the biography of Madame C.J. Walker, America's first self-made millionairess.
Madame C.J. Walker's fortune was built on skin and hair care products, parlaying a homemade beauty formula into a prosperous business from coast to coast. By interweaving social, economic and political history, the film also offers a view of black America from 1867 to the 1930s.
