After high school, she attended Spencerian College of Commerce and became the first black woman to graduate in 1889. Career[edit] After graduation, Hunton moved to Normal, Alabama, to teach at the State Normal and Agricultural College, which is now known as the Alabama Agricultural and Mechanical University.[5] In New York, Hunton was recognized by the National Board of the YWCA in 1907 and appointed as secretary. In 1917, the U.S. entered World War I. Personal life[edit] In July 1893, she married William Alphaeus Hunton, who was working in Norfolk, Virginia to establish the Young Men's Christian Association for Negro youth. Kathryn Magnolia Johnson. Kathryn Magnolia Johnson (December 15, 1878 – November 13, 1954)[1][2] was an American political activist who began working as a teacher before becoming one of the first members of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.[2] After criticizing the organization's all white leadership roles, Johnson joined the Young Men's Christian Association.[3] After the organization sent Johnson to France to observe during World War I, Johnson published a book about her findings called, Two Colored Women with the American Expeditionary Forces (1920).[2] This book was written with Addie Waites Hunton.[4] The rest of Johnson's life was dedicated to spreading African American activism across the states through book selling to help in the campaign for civil rights.[5] Early life[edit] Teaching career and activism[edit]
