    The photo that you are using to represent David Walker is a photo of of James W.C. Pennington, an orator, minister and abolitionist IT IS NOT AN IMMAGE OF DAVID WALKER. There is no known image of Walker. He died in 1830, before the camera was invented and used commonly. We sometimes also see images of Walker's son used to represent him. Use of this image does a disservice to his memory and I'm hopeful it will be removed from this site. http://www.davidwalkermemorial.org/david-walker/wedding-party. Thanks
