Pioneering beauty entrepreneur Rose Morgan in a 1961 advertisement for Gleem toothpaste. Ms. Morgan owned Rose Morgan’s House of Beauty, a salon she opened in Harlem in the 1940s that she eventually expanded to include a dressmaking department, a charm school and a wig salon. In 1965, she was a co-founder of the black-owned Freedom National Bank in New York. A former wife of boxing legend Joe Louis, her celebrity clientele (long before her marriage) included Lena Horne, Ethel Waters and my aunt, opera singer Margaret Tynes.
