Pastor, teacher, civil rights leader, ecumenist, social justice pioneer, urban missionary, relief worker, statesman-John Walker was all of these, and more. As both the first African-American accepted to study at Virginia Theological Seminary and to serve as a Master at St. Paul's School, John later rose to Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington, D.C. where he left his mark on presidents, world leaders, and countless others.
