This framed photograph of the nation's first African American female banker and her staff is a quintessential depiction of Maggie L. Walker. It captures the regal appearance of the fraternal leader against the backdrop of her office, the St. Luke Hall. This photo once hung inside the St. Luke Hall which, like Walker herself, was revered as a beacon of black entrepreneurship and community pride during the Jim Crow Era.
