A’Lelia Bundles

A’Lelia Bundles’s motivational speeches about Madam Walker and about her own career in television news have been well-received at several conferences and institutions, including the Smithsonian Institution, the Conference on Black Philanthropy, the Philadelphia Free Library, Harvard University, Princeton University, the United States Postal Service, the Council on Foundations, the Indiana Historical Society, the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, the National Archives, Detroit’s Charles H. Wright Museum of African
American History, the New York Historical Society and the Chicago Public Library.

A tireless keeper of her family legacy, Bundles spearheaded the national campaign which led to the 1998 United States Postal Service’s Black Heritage Series stamp of Madam Walker. In 1992 her young adult biography, Madam C. J. Walker: Entrepreneur (Chelsea House, 1991), received an American Book Award from the Before Columbus Foundation and was named a Best Book for the Teen Age by the New York Public Library. Considered the authority on Walker’s life, Bundles’s essays and articles have appeared in
several encyclopedias, books and magazines. Most recently her writing has been featured in Fortune Small Business, Black Issues Book Review, Essence and Heart and Soul.

She is a member of the boards of the Madam Walker Theatre Center and the Center on Philanthropy in Indianapolis and is the immediate past president of the Radcliffe Association at Harvard University. A graduate of Harvard and Radcliffe Colleges and of the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, she is a member of Phi Beta Kappa.
