Amid the panic and days spent mostly at home trying to avoid the chaos outside, finding the right thing to watch has become more complicated than usual. Netflix’s latest four-part series, Self Made: Inspired By The Life Of Madam C.J. Walker, might just be the answer. The inspiring period story of ambition is based on the life of Madam C.J. Walker, who was the first American woman to become a self-made millionaire.

A daughter of former slaves, Walker built a business empire in 1880s by helping black women take care of their hair. The series is based on the 2002 biography On Her Own by Walker’s great-great-granddaughter A’Lelia Bundles.
