Maggie L. Walker was an African American mother, teacher, businesswoman, community leader, a civil rights activist, and the first female bank president in the U.S. She founded the St. Luke Penny Savings Bank in 1903 as a result of her dedication to the Independent Order of St. Luke, an organization that cared for the sick and promoted humanitarian causes. The bank later merged with two other banks and is still in operation today as Consolidated Bank and Trust, the oldest existing African American-owned and operated business in the U.S. Through her accomplishments, Maggie offered tangible improvements in the way of life for African Americans and women. Welcome Maggie into their Hall of Genius.

Olaudah Equiano (1745 - 1797)
Bravery. Courage. Strength. Olaudah Equiano embodied all these traits and more as a kidnapped African prince, forced into slavery. He survived many years of oppression aboard a slave ship, but through his relentless hard work and inspiring strength, Equiano endured and persevered until he finally reclaimed his freedom. He later wrote his own autobiography, recounting his imprisonment and revealing the horrors of slavery to the world. His brilliance and strength to speak the truth soon became a catalyst in passing the Slave Trade Act of 1807. Equiano's courage to fight for what he believed in - against all odds - was the inspiration for our Equiano print. We are proud and honored to welcome this heroic print into the Hall of Genius.
