Synopsis

Documentary profile of Maggie Lena Walker, an African-American woman from Richmond, Virginia, who became a national figure through her banking, fraternal insurance and organizational activities in turn-of-the-century America. Born into poverty in post-Civil War Richmond in 1867, Walker transformed a small fraternal beneficial society, the Independent Order of St. Luke, into a major institution serving African Americans in 28 states.
