In keeping with our mission, this year’s event honors two legendary entrepreneurs from Louisiana in the hair care industry, Madame C. J. Walker, and Emmitt T. Douglas.

Emmitt Douglas gained recognition statewide as a local businessman, and owner of Douglas Barber and Beauty Supply and Douglas Fine Foods.

Both Walker and Douglas were considered leaders in the hair care industry and dedicated philanthropists.
