Moses Walker was so disillusioned by racism in the United States that he wrote a pamphlet titled 'Our American Colony' in which he advised black Americans to emigrate to Liberia.

Recent investigations by Peter Morris of the Society for American Baseball Research may have found another black player who predates Moses Walker. William Edward White, a student at Brown University, who played one game for the National League's Providence Grays on June 21, 1879, may have been the son of a white Georgia plantation owner and a black slave woman.
