Trump nominates Alveda King for Frederick Douglass commission

Alveda King, a niece of Martin Luther King Jr., and a staunch supporter of Donald Trump, has been nominated by the president to serve on the Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission. The announcement comes roughly a year after Trump implied that Douglass, a former slave turned social reformer and abolitionist, was still alive. For a president who has been accused of racism, King has been one of his few African-American allies and a constant presence and advocate. King, a stalwart Christian anti-abortion conservative, was by Trump’s side – along with HUD Secretary Ben Carson – last February when he visited the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African-American History and Culture. Without being specific, King said the commission will work this year to honor and highlight the work of Douglass, who was born a slave in Maryland on Feb. 20, 1819. 

Douglass escaped slavery in 1838, taught himself to read and became a gifted orator, forcefully speaking out against slavery. He wrote at least three autobiographies, championed the rights of black soldiers to fight in the Civil War, and was a confidante and friend of President Abraham Lincoln.

Martin Luther King Jr’s Niece Alveda King: Abortion is Racism and Takes Away the Civil Rights of Unborn Babies

Alveda King the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King jr is responding today to the white supremacy protests in Charlottesville, Virginia. King says the white supremacists definitely need to be condemned and that racism is a sin and a blight on society. The niece of the slain civil rights leader says she believes that abortion is also racism because it denies civil rights to unborn children. As we see from the most recent racially motivated massacre in Virginia, racism is still alive and raising hell. 

The big lie is that we are separate races, when in fact the spiritual, scientific and biological fact is that we are one blood; one human race. We should be grateful that President Trump is calling for a ceasefire on the violence. King also said abortion is racism – a message she admits some people don’t want to hear. As one of God’s microphones, I’m often required to say what people don’t want to hear. Abortion is racism, in that abortion takes away the civil rights and lives of our weakest and most vulnerable members of the human race, unborn babies. 

For both forms of racism, King called for nonviolent responses.

Alveda King Speaks at Glenn Beck’s D.C. Rally

King, the niece of civil rights activist Martin Luther King, Jr. and daughter of his brother activist A. D. King, is currently the director of African-American outreach at the pro-life group Priests for Life and has recently stepped into the spotlight after several appearances on Beck’s radio program. Throughout her career King has courted controversy as an advocate for the pro-life movement. 

After having two abortions herself, King began speaking publicly, often at college campuses, about abortion issues. In 1996 she publicly condemned her aunt Coretta Scott King’s support of abortion rights. King brushed off criticism that Beck was dishonoring her uncle’s legacy by hosting a rally on the anniversary of his most famous speech, stating that the rally is about faith, honor and love, principles that her family has supported. While speaking in front of tens of thousands today in DC, King said that she hopes that white privilege will become human privilege and that America will soon repent of the sin of racism and return itself to honor.

King Rules

In King Rules, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. shares that message in a deeply personal collection of hard-learned lessons, timeless truths, and foundational principles. Dr. Alveda King’s words are lovingly crafted yet refreshingly blunt at a time when bluntness is needed to counter the forces of moral drift and empty relativism. 

Beginning with a vulnerable admission of her own wounds and wanderings, Alveda unfolds eleven core values that have guided her family through generations of triumph and tragedy-and have played a pivotal role in fostering revolutionary change in society. Out of a heart of compassion, she dispenses wise meditations on bedrock subjects including faith and family, peace and justice, education and civic life. With thoughtful conviction she also boldly tackles topics considered divisive in our postmodern world, from abortion and sexuality to gun control and marriage laws. The King Rules is a page-turning narrative that blends eyewitness history with grandmotherly wisdom.

Dr. Aveda King: Colin Kaepernick protest is very disturbing

Welcome to our Testimony Directory

Partial Birth Abortion is perhaps the most heinous form of this legal genocide. Direct links connecting abortion and serious conditions such as breast and cervical cancer, emotional disorders and other serious ills must be considered! The only healing and redemption is in the blood of Jesus, blood willingly shed so that we could stand today and cry out for the blood of the unborn that is drenching the land of our children. In the early 1970’s, I suffered one involuntary and one voluntary abortion. My involuntary abortion was performed just prior to Roe v. 

Wade by my private physician without my consent. I had trouble bonding with my son, and his five siblings who were born after the abortions. I began to suffer from eating disorders, depression, nightmares, sexual dysfunctions and a host of other issues related to the abortion that I chose to have. I felt angry about both abortions, and very guilty about the abortion I chose to have. My children have all suffered from knowing that they have a brother or sister that their mother chose to abort. 

The aborted child’s father also regrets the abortion. If it had not been for Roe v. Wade, I would never have had that abortion, only Jesus can. My birthday is January 22, and each year, this day is marred by the fact that it is the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, and the anniversary of death for millions of babies. 

If the Dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is to live, our babies must live.

Huh?!? Alveda King compares VP Mike Pence to her uncle, Martin Luther King Jr.

The lengths to which some members of the King family will go to misuse, misappropriate and monetize his legendary legacy is almost criminal. MLK’s niece, Alveda King, has a soft spot in her heart for the Donald Trump administration, and Vice President Mike Pence in particular, and she has even had the intestinal fortitude to compare the veep to her uncle, the legendary civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. Yes, she took it there. For one thing, Omarosa warns the country not to impeach Donald Trump, because she said Pence is much worse and even more evil of a person, in addition to being mentally misshapen. King went on Fox News, where she not only was vehemently supportive of President Donald Trump but also said that she had felt Jesus speak to her before. 

She then took it one step further to say that her uncle, Martin Luther King Jr. had also felt called by Christ. It’s one thing to debate religion and a relationship with Christ. Pence is far from the first person to feel called by God. It’s another issue entirely to try to compare the relatively unknown Pence a history-making, barrier-breaking icon like MLK. 

King has already shown in multiple examples that she’s willing to defend Trump despite the administration’s racist policies and deplorable initiatives. Alveda King should be barred from uttering her uncle’s revered name in all future public pronouncements.

Evangelist Alveda King: America, Take a Knee!

I, for one, would like to see the Black American National Anthem included in tributes to our nation. What’s missing in this situation is balance, due to the lack of knowledge regarding the complete and complicated history of the founding and ongoing American struggle for liberty for all Americans, whether it be civil war, war with other nations, domestic squabbles and so on. Our people are truly perishing for lack of knowledge. We need to take a knee to defund Planned Parenthood. With all of the current painful debates regarding immigration versus national safety and security, along with the horrific hostile overthrow of statues and monuments across the country, we need to take a knee. 

Acts 17:26 says God created all human beings of one blood, so regardless of skin color, we are one human race. Let’s continue to pray for our president and all in authority so we can live peaceful lives. There’s a lot of money at stake in sports, immigration, national memorials and so on. Our cherished flag and national anthem are under God, not to be worshipped. It’s time to teach and engage the six steps of nonviolent conflict resolution. 

Alveda King is author of King Rules, founder of Alveda King Ministries, director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life, and spiritual adviser for Restore the Dream 2015. Connect with God in a deeper way as you read His Word.

Examples of Unity – Evangelist Alveda King on The Jim Bakker Show

Alveda King: These Riots Are Deja Vu, the Monuments Belong in Museums

Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., said watching events unfold in Charlottesville last weekend felt very familiar. Rev. A.D. 

King, was a civil rights activist alongside Dr. Martin Luther King. Alveda remembers her Birmingham family home being bombed as well as her father’s church office in Louisville, Kentucky. During the open housing movement she spent time in jail. King says the week-end further exposed the white supremacist movement for what it is and she believes that’s a positive outcome. 

She agrees with a number of other black conservative leaders who are defending the president’s response to Charlottesville. At a press conference at the National Press Club on Monday leaders from CURE, a conservative policy group, rejected a question from reporters implying that the president is responsible for the country’s racial divide. King told CBN News she supports the president’s response to Charlottesville. She said after initial broad comments he gave a more targeted response, specifically condemning white supremacists and the KKK and neo-Nazis. That’s in line historically she said with how presidents have responded to difficult events over the years. 

King says the debate over where Confederate monuments belong has a simple answer: in museums. Star Parker, the president of CURE, told Fox News that she finds it ironic that liberals are calling for Confederate flags to come down when they want to raise rainbow flags symbolizing the LGBTQ movement.

“Alveda King: 2017 Revelation: America Return to God!”

Let the prophets and intercessors unite with the high praises of God in our mouths. During personal Bible study time, it came to me that we should be ashamed to say that we are trusting God, only to then turn to the world’s solutions for our problems. Finally, 21st century America seems to have taken notice that something more is required if there is truly to be hope for America. Yes, there is hope, and there still may be time to return to God and rebuild God’s wall of protection around our nation. One thing is for sure, many men and women in the Bible came to discover and understand that there is a God in Heaven. 

We learn the consequences of rejecting God through the experiences of those who would not submit to God’s sovereignty. In the Bible, many learned to love, serve and obey God. As our Bible heroes began to know and follow God in the fullness of truth, so can we. For those who receive God as Father, Christ as Lord, and Holy Spirit as Helper, God expresses agape love and divine sovereignty. In God’s many expressions, titles and names, God’s character is revealed. 

Even as the year 2016 was a season for God repairing breaches and unleashing many spiritual gifts to advance His Heavenly Kingdom, I pray that 2017 and beyond will be remembered as the beginning of a new and fresh wave of repentance, healing and forgiveness among families, communities and nations. As this happens, the repairing, rebuilding, restoring process is all part of God’s eternal plan to draw America ever closer to His heart.

Alveda King’s attempted claiming of the MLK legacy is sad

Many black leaders oppose the comparisons between the African-American civil rights movement and the gay rights movement. Few are as vehemently opposed to the comparison as Martin Luther King Jr’s niece, Alveda King. As her recent behavior demonstrates, it could be that Alveda King doesn’t like the so-called appropriation of the black civil rights movement because it hones in on her action. Last month, during an anti-gay marriage rally, she said pretty much the same thing during a verbal attack on her late aunt, Coretta Scott King. In which he would constantly pepper the conversations in various skits with assurances that his character was a lawyer. 

King would be equally funny except for the fact she has made a career out of being. It’s the symbol of MLK that’s more important. In this particular case, i.e. Beck’s rally, Alveda King is soiling the King name and legacy by aligning it with someone who, if he had been around during King’s time, would be one of the first to denigrate him with as much ease as he is now denigrating what King stood for. I don’t think the King legacy has anything to do with blackboards, conspiracy theories, and charlatans who can cry crocodile tears at the drop of a hat. 

MLK’s legacy should never be used like a commodity nor should it be determined by blood relationships. MLK’s legacy is about truth, integrity, and most of all, love. So while the King blood does flow through Alveda’s veins, she seems to be sorely lacking on the other points. 

Keywords: [“King”,”Alveda”,”blood”]

GUEST. – Alveda King comes from a legacy of dreamers. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., dreamed of having his children judged by the content of their character, and Alveda King dreams of the rights of babies who are artificially breached before coming to term in his or her mother’s womb. Alveda is a pro-life activist and a post-abortive mother. 

Today, she has six living children, but in the early 1970s, she suffered one involuntary and one voluntary abortion. Her doctor gave her an abortion under false pretenses. Soon after the Roe v. Wade decision, in 1973, Alveda became pregnant again, and at age 22, she walked into a Planned Parenthood clinic and underwent a second abortion. The physical toll on her body and the emotional strain of the abortions led to the demise of her first marriage. 

Over the next few years, Alveda experienced medical problems and had trouble bonding with her children who were born after the abortions. As a result of her abortion, Alveda suffered from eating disorders, depression, nightmares, sexual dysfunctions and a host of other issues, and the guilt made her very ill. Alveda divorced two more times in her life, but she says when she met Jesus in 1983, He opened her eyes to the reality of what she had done and forgave her for destroying her babies. Alveda was an unlikely woman to become a pro-life activist. The painful experience behind her abortion helped her uncover the lies used by the abortion industry.

Alveda King: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece Alveda King is speaking positively about Donald Trump’s plan for urban communities. Some conservatives on Twitter have claimed that King endorsed Trump. A video they are sharing of an interview she gave with Fox News is not quite an endorsement, but King’s niece did praise Trump and has done so before. King – the daughter of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s younger and only brother, A.D., who died tragically not long after the assassination – is a polarizing figure. 

Conservative news sites and Trump supporters have been sharing the interview on social media as Trump has made a concerted effort to entice black voters over to his campaign, despite polling that shows minority voters overwhelmingly favor Hillary Clinton and criticism over comments he’s been making, such as a tweet about basketball star Dwyane Wade’s cousin, Nykea Aldridge, who was slain in Chicago. On Facebook, she said she attended a meeting Trump had with evangelicals. King is perhaps best known for her outspoken advocacy against abortion. She has urged the Black Lives Matter movement to oppose abortion, saying it costs black lives. Far more than political commentary, her Facebook page is largely devoted to comments against abortion. 

She praised Trump again for his comment about unrest in American cities. A.D. King believed in non-violence, said the Stanford encyclopedia. The bio adds that she writes for conservative websites and is a Fox News contributor as well as serving on pro-life boards and being a singer and actress.

Trump upgrades Martin Luther King birthplace to national historic park

President Trump is accompanied by Alveda King, niece of civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. as he arrives at Dobbins Air Reserve Base in Marietta, Ga., Monday. Trump signed a bill expanding the Martin Luther King national historical site before attending college football’s national championship game in Atlanta. Trump signed Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historical Park Act of 2017 aboard Air Force One after touching down in Marietta, Ga., to attend the college football national championship game between the University of Alabama and the University of Georgia. 

The national historical site in Atlanta already includes King’s birthplace, the church where he was baptized, and his burial place. The legislation Trump signed Monday upgrades the designation to a national historical park, and expands the boundaries to include the Prince Hall Masonic Temple. The temple served as the headquarters of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the civil rights group King co-founded. More: President Trump signs executive order on rural broadband Internet. The bill was sponsored by Rep. 

John Lewis, D-Ga., who said the change would significantly improve the way the National Park Service preserves, shares and presents King’s legacy to visitors. The nation will celebrate a federal holiday named for King on Monday. Earlier Monday, Trump signed a related bill, the African American Civil Rights Network Act of 2017, which requires the National Park Service to link various historical sites related to the civil rights movement.

Alveda King

Alveda Celeste King is an American activist, author and former state representative. Today, there is no greater injustice than that suffered by the 4,000 babies, 1,400 of them black, who die on any given day at the hands of abortionists. Friday, we will stand witness in front of the White House and testify to President Obama and that while he is living his dreams, those babies will be dying horrible deaths because of the policies he supports. My dad A.D. King, Uncle MLK, and Granddaddy King passed on to me their beliefs on biblical marriage. 

Life is a human and civil right, so is procreative marriage… We must now go back to the beginning, starting with Genesis, and teach about God’s plan for marriage… It’s time to start from scratch and lay the foundation all over again. I’m born into a family of preachers, so I want Mr. Trump to remember that many people who voted for him took a long time praying for him. 

If he can take some of that divine guidance, that’s going to help him out. We do need unity, and from my perspective as a minister myself, God has not forgotten America. So if Mr. Trump can remember that, I believe that he can take some positive steps towards unity. I pray that all polar opposites learn to Agape Love, live and work together as brothers and sisters – or perish as fools. 

While I voted for Mr. Trump, my confidence remains in God, for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Prayers for President-elect Trump, Congressman Lewis, and everyone including leaders.

Alveda King Shares the History of Abortion in the African American Community (1of5)

Alveda King Delivers Keynote at Pro-life Rose Day in Oklahoma

King, the niece of the late civil rights icon, Martin Luther King, Jr., serves as a pastoral associate and director of Civil Rights for the Unborn, the African-American Outreach for Priests for Life and Gospel of Life Ministries. Pro-lifers are encouraged to take a rose to their legislator, and ask them to support the right to life. In 1990, the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma took over the leadership, working closely with other churches, especially Oklahoma Roman Catholics, and Oklahomans for Life, in spearheading the effort. King is a former college professor and was elected as a Democrat to the Georgia House of Representatives, serving two terms. Coretta Scott King, the widow of Martin Luther King, did not support her. 

Since 1983, King has been delivering public speeches against abortion. Several pro-life legislators, as well as the governor and lieutenant governor, were introduced to the packed chamber and gallery, and King expressed disappointment that no African-American lawmakers had opted to attend. When she was conceived in 1950, King said that her mother had wanted to abort her so she could continue college, but her grandfather persuaded her mother that would be against the Bible. Despite owing her very existence to the fact that her mother chose not to abort her, King lamented that she herself later had two abortions, and a later miscarriage, a result of the two abortions. Later King said she became a Christian and then a pro-life activist. 

When Martin Luther King, Jr. won the Margaret Sanger Award from Planned Parenthood in 1966, he refused to accept the award. According to Alveda King, King’s wife, Coretta, accepted it for him.

MLK’s niece: Pro-life work continues my uncle’s legacy- ACI Prensa

King, 66, grew up in the heat of the civil rights battle led by her uncle, and surrounded by the sexual revolution of the 1960s. After experiencing the crushing physical and emotional effects of two abortions, and receiving what she believes was a prophetic intervention from her grandfather, Rev. Martin Luther King Sr., she had a change of heart. On the last day of the gathering, King had the chance to meet Pope Francis, who often cites her uncle in his speeches. When it comes to her own advocacy, life issues have always hit home for King, whose parents in 1950 became pregnant with her before they were married. 

After hearing Martin Luther King Sr. describe how his granddaughter would look, Alveda King’s parents decided against the abortion and she was born in 1951. Despite hearing this story many times in her youth, King took a different path after her father and uncle died. In addition to her famous family ties, King had a career in law, was a college professor and served in the Georgia State House of Representatives. King said that Martin Luther King Jr. 

had never supported the organization’s agenda. Part of why the Negro Project grew as fast as it did, she said, is that it funded scholarships and grants for the black community that were tied to support for the abortion movement. King said that if her uncle were alive today, she has no doubt that he would be adamantly pro-life. Looking ahead, King is encouraged by the millennial generation, whom she sees as being able to speak to modern society in a direct, passionate, and fresh way. Despite obstacles, King is hopeful that the level of awareness and resistance in the United States could indicate a turning point on the issue of abortion.

ROME – If one were to identify a celebrity in the contemporary fight against abortion, that person probably would be Alveda King. It’s not primarily her cameos on the silver screen in the late ’80s, nor her frequent appearances on Fox News as a conservative commentator, which have awarded King with this star-like quality. Instead, King’s superstar status derives from her public, relentless and consistent advocacy for the pro-life movement. Today, she acts as the Director of African-American Outreach for Gospel of Life, led by Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life, and she’s also the founder of Alveda King Ministries. Throughout her career, King has been a pro-life advocate from the pulpit of churches to marches before the Supreme Court. 

Sitting before a small group of reporters, including Crux, King sipped a freshly made cappuccino, the glint of the large silver cross dangling from her neck reflecting on the lens of her glasses. King pointed to what she believes is an historic opportunity, where Christians under President Donald Trump finally have a platform to put an end to permissive abortion policies in the United States. Until 1983, King was a pro-choice advocate, having transferred her zeal for human rights activism in the brewing women’s movement. When King got pregnant once again, she let slip to her grandfather that she intended to go through with another abortion. During his trip to the United States in September of 2015, Francis listed Martin Luther King, Jr. 

as an example of someone who inspires good works while addressing a joint session of Congress and has often quoted him during his interviews and speeches. Ultimately, the hope for the fight against abortion in the U.S. is getting young people on board and aware of the importance of the issue, King insisted. While the debate might still be out on whether younger generations will actually commit to a pro-life stance, King firmly believes that the Trump presidency offers an opportunity for Christians against abortion that is too good to miss.

Charleston Republicans honor MLK’s niece Alveda King this week, here’s our Q&A with her on the issues

Alveda King, a pro-life activist and the niece of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., will deliver the keynote speech at a Black History Month banquet in Charleston on Wednesday night. Among the honorees are former Charleston Chronicle publisher Jim French, Charleston County Sheriff’s Office chief deputy sheriff Eric Watson, businesswoman Chardale R. Murray; North Charleston police chief Reggie Burgess; local interviewer Quintin Washington, and Charleston interim police chief Jerome Taylor. In honor of King’s upcoming speech, we spoke to her about her often-controversial views, what motivates her, and how she reconciles some of her views with those of her legendary uncle. 

King: This is a message that we are living in a time of opportunity, and things are getting better in America. King: Well, it’s true that once we acknowledge the baby in the womb is a person of course, abortion would have to be abolished. King: I just really believe that marriage between a man and a woman – devoted, loving – is the best environment for birthing children and raising children. King: I’m just saying same-sex people, as in having a sexual union between two men or two ladies, that’s sex, it’s not love. King: What he said, if you go back to his advice column, he advised that he would not have sex outside of marriage period. 

King: What I especially like about the Trump administration, President Trump keeps his promises. King: What he was saying – he wasn’t talking about the people in these countries. CP: You often come under fire for holding views that many think are antithetical to those of Dr. King, or even to those of your father, A.D. King. 

King: I do not try to live up to the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I try to live up to the legacy of the God that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. served, and I’m doing the best that I can.

Trump may be working to improve his sparse black support

Alveda King noticed two moments on Tuesday when President Donald Trump seemed visibly moved during his tour of the National Museum of African American History and Culture. Trump was making his first visit to the celebrated museum that recognizes 400 years of black struggle and achievement in the United States – from slave ships to the Mothership. If Trump wants broad support among African-Americans, he has work to do, and some thought he may have begun that work with Tuesday’s visit. Alveda King, an early supporter of Trump, said his visit sent a positive message to black Americans, only 8 percent of whom voted for Trump in November. Janice Mathis, executive director of the National Council of Negro Women, whose founder, and longest-serving leader, are featured throughout the museum, said it is now incumbent on Trump to prove that his visit can go beyond symbolism and optics toward making meaningful public policy. 

Trump ran on a platform that seemingly filtered the black experience to a narrow scope of crime, poverty and violence. Unlike his predecessors, George W. Bush and Barack Obama, who had diverse cabinets, Trump has appointed only one African-American to his inner circle, HUD Secretary Ben Carson. Alveda King, the niece of Martin Luther King Jr. and a staunch anti-abortion conservative, was called by the White House last week and asked whether she would be interested in touring the Smithsonian’s newest and most popular museum with the president. 

King went to the White House early Tuesday, where she met with Carson and Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina – one of only three black senators and the only black Republican in the chamber. King said the group started at the bottom of the museum, first visiting a gallery that focuses on the history of slavery and features remnants of a sunken slave ship. The president saw exhibits dedicated to Oprah Winfrey, Muhammad Ali and Carson, who was a renowned neurosurgeon hailed in black communities. She said the group also saw the few instances in which Martin Luther King Jr. 

is featured in the museum.

Dinesh D’Souza, Alveda King, Guy Penrod speak at Vero Beach Prayer Breakfast

Keynote speaker Dinesh D’Souza, best-selling author, speaker, filmmaker and scholar, delivers a message to the audience of the 14th annual Vero Beach Prayer Breakfast Thursday, March 22, 2018, at the Indian River County fairgrounds. INDIAN RIVER COUNTY – Prayers, music and faith were all part of the 14th annual Vero Beach Prayer Breakfast that took place Thursday at the Indian River County Fairgrounds. More than 1,500 of the area’s faithful came out to hear Conservative activist Dinesh D’Souza, Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece Alveda King and Guy Penrod, former lead singer of the Gaither Vocal Band.MORE: Conservative activist Dinesh D’Souza to be Vero Beach Prayer Breakfast keynote speaker. The Rev. Bill Jerrils, the senior adults and visitation pastor at the First Church of God in Vero Beach, said he appreciated hearing from D’Souza. 

Maureen Nicolace, president of the Vero Beach Christian Business Association, said she was happy D’Souza chose to emphasize his faith, rather than some of his more political views. King, director of Civil Rights for the Unborn, said the prayer breakfast was a testimony to the goodness of God, and she urged people to live together as brothers and sisters in one human race. Juelie Perry, of Sebastian, raises her hands in praise as special guest Guy Penrod sings during the 14th annual Vero Beach Prayer Breakfast Thursday, March 22, 2018, at the Indian River County fairgrounds. More: Prayer breakfast speakers urge honoring everyday heroes. The Vero Beach Prayer Breakfast was established more than a decade ago by organizer John Bona after he attended a similar event with his wife, Carol. 

For many years, the Vero Beach gathering took place under a tent in Riverside Park, but moved back to the fairground pavilion in 2016 to accommodate the larger crowds. Bona said the purpose of the annual prayer breakfast is to seek the Lord’s direction for the faithful of Vero Beach and the surrounding area. Peter Sweck, of Sebastian, attended the breakfast and said he found the morning spiritual and moving.

World Over – 2015–01-08 – ‘Selma’ movie and race relations, Dr. Alveda King with Raymond Arroyo

Alveda King insists ‘Trump is not a racist’

Late last week, Trump became the focus of yet another media firestorm after Sen. Richard Durbin publicly charged him with crudely addressing a Caribbean nation and several African countries by a crude term. King – who is a former member of the Georgia state House of Representatives and taught as a college professor – insists that the Democratic Party and the left-leaning mainstream media is just jumping on the latest opportunity to bash the president. She asserted that if there is any truth to the allegation against Trump, she is confident that his words were directed toward the corrupt leaders of those nation’s oppressive governments – not the people as a whole. King was quick to point out the positive strides Trump has made for the African American community in the United States, alluding to the economic viability that has blacks have gained with the 45th president in charge after eight lackluster years under the administration of former President Barack Obama – who many Democratic leaders have lauded as the champion of minorities and civil rights, despite the escalating racial tensions during his two terms. 

One of the instances of Trump’s efforts to lift the black community that King said has worked to forward the civil rights strides that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., made through the movement he started about half a century ago was the park the first-year president opened in her iconic uncle’s name. With Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday being celebrated Monday, his niece pointed out that his legacy continues today through the pro-life movement – a movement that has been forwarded by Trump, who has worked in Washington, D.C., to defund the world’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood. Serving with Priests for Life as director of Civil Rights for the Unborn, King stressed that Dr. 

Martin Luther King was always mindful and expressive of his devotion to the sanctity of human life. She also addressed an issue concerning MLK’s wife, Coretta Scott King – who in 1996 received an award from Planned Parenthood on behalf of her husband – impressing that her uncle would have firmly stood against the abortion giant’s pro-abortion agenda that it has agressively carried out over the decades. With the 31st annual March for Life being held this coming Friday in Washington, D.C., King stressed that the ongoing civil rights crusade to which her uncle dedicated his life extends to the leaps and bounds made by today’s pro-life movement.

Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece to speak at Ave Maria law’s pro-life march

Alveda King, pro-life activist and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., is joining Naples students to speak out against abortion. On Jan. 12, Ave Maria School of Law is hosting its inaugural Monsignor Laurence Higgins Respect for Life celebration, which will be open to the public. King will give a presentation before pro-life participants hit the streets for a 2-mile walk starting at the North Naples campus and continuing around the Vineyards community. More: NAACP files complaint against CCPS over School Board’s decision to hold class on MLK Day.Just like her uncle, Dr. 

King, famed leader of the Civil Rights Movement, and her father, Rev. A. D. King, the Atlanta-based activist has made it her mission in life to fight for what she believes in. Every year, King holds dozens of Christian-centered speaking engagements across the globe, and said she’s a vocal pro-life advocate. 

Ave Maria School of Law students, faculty and staff get ready to speak out for pro-life during last year’s March of Life event on the Naples campus. A few days after the local march, on Jan. 19, about 30 students, faculty and staff will fly to Washington, D.C., to participate in the 45th annual March for Life.The national rally protests abortion and usually takes place on or around the Jan. 22 anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to legalize abortion in the Roe v. Wade case. Jay Hamilton, third year law student and president of Lex Vitae Society, a pro-life organization, said he’s excited to attend the local, and national march. 

Ave Maria School of Law has participated in the March for Life in D.C. since the school opened about 17 years ago. The Naples march began three years ago in order to accommodate students, faculty and staff who couldn’t travel. This year’s event is dedicated to Monsignor Laurence Higgins, the founder of the St. Lawrence Catholic parish of Tampa in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Saint Petersburg, who died in 2016.Higgins was a strong pro-life proponent like King, which is why she was selected as the event’s speaker, said Donna C.

Houston group says Martin Luther King Jr. was a Republican

We discovered, Republican groups have previously declared King one of their own. In 2006, the Sarasota, Fla.-based National Black Republican Association ran radio ads in Washington, D.C.; Georgia; Maryland; Ohio; and Pennsylvania including the statement that King was a Republican, according to an Oct. 19, 2006, Washington Post news story. When we asked Raging Elephants for information to support its claim that King himself was a Republican, Kamau-Imani pointed us to a video made by the National Black Republican Association featuring one of King’s nieces, Alveda King, founder of the faith-based group King for America. Next, we sought historical expertise, including by asking Thomas Jackson, a history professor at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro and author of From Civil Rights to Human Rights: Martin Luther King, Jr., and the Struggle for Economic Justice, for his take on the video. David Garrow – author of Bearing the Cross: Martin Luther King, Jr. 

and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, which won the 1987 Pulitzer Prize for biography – advised against assigning King to either party. In his book, Garrow writes that during the 1960 race between Kennedy and Republican Richard Nixon, King declined to endorse either nominee – even after Kennedy associates interceded with officials in Georgia to help secure King’s release from jail on a probation violation. According to the King Online Encyclopedia, from Stanford University’s Martin Luther King Jr. Research and Education Institute, King campaigned for Johnson and welcomed his win. In her book, My Life With Martin Luther King, Jr., she wrote that she took the call but was later unsure what to say about it. 

Friends and associates of Martin Luther King Jr. also objected. William Stewart, a political scientist at the University of Alabama, said that if King was a Republican, he kept it a secret. Upshot: Raging Elephants points to a King family member whose declaration lends support for its claim that King was a Republican: his niece Alveda. Another King relative, his son, disagrees, as do respected academic experts and former King associates and friends.
