In Pursuit of the American Dream -- Evangelist Alveda C. King -- October 2021

"I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream." Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

ATLANTA, Oct. 22, 2021 /Standard Newswire/ -- The following is submitted by evangelist Alveda King, she is available for comment:

I was born on January 22, 1951 and welcomed into the King Family Legacy by my parents Alfred Daniel Williams King and Naomi Ruth Barber King. My grandfather, Rev. Martin Luther King, Sr. had prophesied my birth, warning my mother not to abort me; but rather to birth me. "Naomi, there will be no abortion. This baby is a little girl, with bright skin, and bright red hair; and she will bless many people," was Granddaddy's promise to my mother.

For me, civil rights, human rights, and human dignity have always been intertwined, all a part of my life in the King Family Legacy. There was a season in my life when I first became involved in politics; an experience that intersected my values and helped to shape my worldview. I had a front row seat for the making of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday.

Having been elected to represent George's 28th house in 1978, on April 4, 1984, I was a Georgia state legislator the day the MLK GA Holiday Bill was announced.

In January 2018, I was honored to join President Donald J. Trump on Air Force One when he signed the bill to expand the MLK Park.


In 2019, The Trump Administration added the historical home of my parents to the African American Civil Rights Network.

In August of 2021, I retired from a sixteen-year full-time job with Priests for Life. On September 1, 2021, I founded the prolife organization SPEAK FOR LIFE. This is a season where challenges such as COVID, Critical Race Theory, Abortion Debates and world chaos seem to abound, yet I remain convinced that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the solution to every human dilemma.


Today, I too have a dream; a dream deeply rooted in the American Dream and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This a dream for all humanity, one blood/one human race, from the womb to the tomb. This dream is not colorblind; we are multi-ethnic, praying to be united not by skin color, but by human kindness and agape love.
