Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Bishop Alexander Walters (1858-1917) was an American clergyman and noted civil rights leader. Born a slave in Bardstown, Kentucky, just before the Civil War, he rose to become a bishop in the African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church at age 33, then president of the National Afro-American Council, the nation's largest civil rights organization, at age 40, serving in that post for most of the next decade. Walters was educated after the War in private schools, serving as valedictorian of his high school class in 1875. Within two years, he was licensed to preach by the A.M.E. Zion Quarterly Conference, serving pastorates in Indianapolis, Louisville, San Francisco, Portland, Oregon, Chattanooga, and Knoxville, Tennessee, before his assignment to Mother Zion Church in New York City in 1888.show more
