i respect her for what she has did for the treatment for our hair..but I think the perm was a bad move..because what people don't realize is that even though you say "I like my hair straight adn/or relaxed," it's because you have conformed to "the white man's" expectations or you are imitating someone else. Just be you. So, even though Madam CJ Walker deserves acknowledgement for her inventions, if I could go back I would tell her not to invent the perm...but still make her other contributions.
