Netflix’s new drama Self Made may be set in the early 20th century, but its soundtrack is a real showcase for some 21st century hits.
The four-parter is based on the real-life story of Madam CJ Walker (played by Octavia Spencer), an African-American entrepreneur and self-made millionaire. As Netflix puts it, “Against all odds, Walker overcame post-slavery racial and gender biases, personal betrayals, and business rivalries to build a ground-breaking brand that revolutionised black haircare, as she simultaneously fought for social change.”
