Wyatt Tee Walker

Rev. Dr. Wyatt Tee Walker is a pastor, national civil rights leader, theologian, and cultural historian. He was a chief of staff for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and in 1958 became an early board member of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC). He helped found a Congress for Racial Equality (CORE) chapter in 1958. As executive director of the SCLC from 1960 to 1964, Walker helped to bring the group to national prominence.

Walker started as pastor at Gillfield Baptist Church in Petersburg, Virginia. For 37 years Walker was senior pastor at Canaan Baptist Church of Christ in Harlem, New York, where he also co-founded the Religious Action Network of Africa Action to oppose apartheid in South Africa and chaired the Central Harlem Local Development Corporation.

Walker retired from Canaan Baptist Church of Christ in 2004 with the title of Pastor Emeritus. He moved to Virginia and taught at the Samuel DeWitt Proctor School of Theology at his alma mater Virginia Union University in Richmond.
