Walker was born enslaved in a small cabin, a year before President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation that freed enslaved African Americans in the southern states. At the age of 13 Walker still couldn’t read or write yet he learned after a teacher gave him a spelling book called, “John’s Common Book.” Walker saved money and went to Hampton Institute to gain a higher education yet couldn’t pass the entrance exam.
