An Actress Born, A Diplomat Bred: Maggie L. Walker, Social Worker

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

During her day, Maggie L. Walker (1864-1934) was best known as the Right Worthy Grand Secretary of the Independent Order of St. Luke and historically as the President of the St. Luke Penny Savings Bank. However, those local to Richmond and Virginia were knowledgeable of her exceptional generosity and compassion towards those less fortunate not necessarily financially, but by situation. She was considered the ultimate "race woman". Her perspective of women's roles and positions in society is evidenced by her vacillation between the perspectives of W. E. B. DuBois and Booker T. Washington, both of whom she knew and supported in their work. While setting an example through the personal and corporate financial support of many community initiatives, her ultimate goal was to encourage independence and economic empowerment among African Americans. Her untiring involvement and leadership of the Richmond Urban League as well as support of the Virginia Industrial School for Girls and numerous civic and social organizations was legendary, but the norm for many Black club women of the day. Through an examination of her activities primarily found in her biography of public record and her speeches, Walker's personal theology and motivation will be examined.
