Who's Behind the Name: The Story of Maggie Lena Walker

Saturday, June 11, 2022

The name of Maggie Lena Walker (1864-1934) seems to pop up everywhere these days. She has been memorialized in bronze for not one but two statues in Richmond, VA in the last five years. Schools, community organizations, streets, banners and even a national historic site sport her name or image. Yet, not many people are truly familiar with her full story. Spend some time with Ajena Cason Rogers, supervisory park ranger at the Maggie L. Walker National Historic Site. Learn the fascinating life story and achievements of one of Richmond's most famous, yet obscure, historical figures.

Registration: Free; registration required. To reserve a seat, call Historic Sites Manager Bryan Truzzie at 804-751-4946.
