Wyatt Tee Walker, a champion of civil rights and human rights, a pastor and theologian, was honored in January with a scholarship luncheon and a community worship service. The scholarship luncheon on Jan. 30 was held at Virginia Union University, his alma mater, and where he teaches. Walker was chief of staff for the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and was a founder of— and later served as executive director of— the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. He is pastor emeritus of Canaan Baptist Church of Christ in New York City’s Harlem borough.
