We are thrilled to announce what promises to be an illuminating and informative guest speaker opportunity on Friday, October 27th at 7:45pm CT at House of David, home of Curt Landry Ministries — the esteemed Dr. Alveda King, a niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Over the next several weeks we will discuss in more detail some of Dr. King’s views and activism, and how they intersect with faith. But first, we would like to provide a brief introduction about who Dr. King is to familiarize our friends with her work before she speaks at The House of David.
While her name and relation to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. already makes her famous, Dr. Alveda King has carved out an impressive career in politics and activism in her own right.
Born in Atlanta, Georgia as the first of five children to A.D. King and his wife Naomi, Dr. King was thrust right into turbulence and terror of the civil rights movement as a young child. When she was 12-years-old, her father became a movement of the Birmingham campaign while serving as a Baptist pastor in Birmingham, Alabama. Later that year her family’s home was bombed by anti-civil rights activists. When she was 18, her father was found dead in his own pool, with the cause of death listed as an “accidental drowning”—though King’s family was suspicious about the true cause of A.D.’s death, given he was an excellent swimmer.
Despite the challenges of growing up as a child heavily exposed to the civil rights movement, King was able to earn an impressive education. She studied journalism and sociology, going on to get a Master of Arts degree in business management from Central Michigan University.
Entering into a public life
After Dr. King left school, she went on to represent the 28th District in the Georgia House of Representatives. In 1984, she ran for the U.S. House of Representatives for Georgia’s 5th congressional district unsuccessfully, though has remained politically and socially active in the years since.
She has, for instance, been a pro-life advocate and speaker since the early 1980s. Before she was born, her mother had strongly considered aborting her, but her grandfather intervened and convinced her to see the pregnancy through. This has had a profound impact on her views on abortion.
She regularly speaks at colleges regarding abortion issues and her own personal experience, pushing alternatives to abortion.
Dr. King has also published a variety of books, which include selections of poetry, memoirs, essays on her outlooks on certain social and political topics and other writings that espouse her worldview.
Finally, she has become a leader in speaking to Christians about the subject of racial reconciliation, which is to be one of the primary subjects of her speaking engagement at House of David Ministries in October.
Over the next few weeks we will discuss her views on racial reconciliation in more detail. But for now, be sure to set aside October 27th to come and listen to this remarkable woman. Contact us today at Curt Landry Ministries if you have any questions.
