Addie is loosely based on Annie Malone, herself a self-made black female millionaire, despite the show representing her as reluctant to mass sell her product, Annie had a storefront in Saint Louis and several employees long before she employed Madame CJ Walker. See more »
Before this series I had never heard about Mme CJ Walker or Annie Malone so it did introduce me to the subject. Then I found out the truth. There is no need for them to create a new narrative especially at the cost of slandering someone in this case Annie Malone and putting the other, Mme CJ Walker on a pedestal. They could have done a much more thoughtful and accurate portrayal. Also I think it would have been better without the modern music. It's entertaining enough but the depiction should be taken with a grain of salt.
