Magee, an African American, was born to free parents living in Madison County, Illinois. When he and his brother were excluded from the local public school, they went to Racine, Wisconsin, where they were allowed to attend public school. Magee became a Baptist minister and was pastor of several churches, including one in Toronto and Union Baptist Church in Cincinnati (at the time this book was published). He went to London in 1867 and studied for a year at C. H. Spurgeon's Pastor's School. At some point, probably long after this book was published, Magee moved to Springfield, Illinois. According to an 2005 article in the Illinois Times, he spent the last dozen years of his life in Springfield as a messenger for the state printer's office while also engaged in a number of educational and civic activities.
