Archive: The Maggie Walker Story
January 30 – February 15, 2015
At the Children's Theatre at Willow Lawn
By Bruce Craig Miller
Part of the Acts of Faith Festival
This compelling drama is a tribute to the great American woman from Richmond, Virginia who helped establish and organize the first civil rights strike by black students and became the nation’s first woman bank president. Starting her work at the order of St. Luke, a national savings group formed to pay the burial expenses of poor blacks, Maggie Walker became a powerful force in civil rights. Through this production, students will form a deeper understanding of Maggie Walker and the times in which she lived.
