“He wasn’t looking down his nose at the world, he was looking out from the table and trying to put restaurants, meals and cuisines in context.

Outspoken throughout her life, Walker-Slocum showcased the music of black composers such as Scott Joplin, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, and former Oberlin student William Grant Still; battled for gender equity in salary; and strode confidently into an interracial marriage amid a torrent of condemnation.
