Abstract:

Civil rights activist Ann Walker was born in Freehold, New Jersey, on February 27, 1928. In 1950, she married Dr. Wyatt Tee Walker, who would later serve as Chief of Staff for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. One year later, Walker graduated from Howard University with her B.S. degree in accounting and economics. During the 1960s, Walker and her husband were very active in the Civil Rights Movement; in 1961, they participated in the Freedom Rides, for which Walker was jailed. Two years later, in 1963, during Martin Luther King Jr.’s campaign to desegregate Birmingham, Alabama, Walker was beaten on Mother’s Day by the National Guard at the Gaston Motel. The Walkers lived in New York in the 1970s, and after raising her children, Walker entered the workforce in 1975 at North American Philips as the Branch Director of their credit union. She retired in 1989, and in 2004, the Walkers moved to Chester, Virginia.
