About this book
In 1867, Madame C.J. Walker was born to former slaves on a Louisiana plantation. The story of how she rose from poverty and indignity to become America's first black female millionaire fascinated renowned author Alex Haley. Before his death in 1992 he embarked on the research and planning of a major novel based on her life. Now, with "The Black Rose", critically acclaimed writer Tananarive Due brings his work to inspiring completion in a compelling, richly textured narrative.

In telling her story, Tananarive Due weaves a spell-binding tale out of the same blend of documented history, vivid dialogue, and sweeping fictionalized narrative that made Alex Haley's Roots such a hug success.
