Same Kind of Different As Me

The Review Self Made

A Listener Review by Heather 

A chronicle of the incredible story of Madam C.J. Walker, who was the first African American self-made millionaire.

‘Self Made’ is a 4 part Netflix series. It’s about triumph over adversity and succeeding against all odds. It was inspired by the book “On Her Own Ground: The Life and Times of Madam C.J. Walker”. Octavia Spencer stars as the lead role & does a fantastic job.

Family Friendly Filter

  • Moderate swearing, not too regular.
  • Some alcohol consumption at parties.
  • Some violence in episode 1, a man punches a woman & brief description of violence from a character.
  • Sexual references – a brief sex scene in episode 3 (not too explicit)

Heather would recommend ages 16 and up. There are many themes throughout that an older audience would understand.

Heather gives this series a big thumbs up!
