Dalton, Georgia: Civil Rights activist and evangelist Alveda King will headline the Women’s Enrichment Center’s annual banquet to be held at the Dalton Convention Center on Tuesday, September 18, 2018, at 6:30 p.m. Tickets for the event can be purchased on the WEC website at www.wecnorthga.org.

ALVEDA C. KING, daughter of the late civil rights activist Rev. A.D. King, grew up during the civil rights movement led by her uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Her family home in Birmingham, Alabama, was bombed, as was her father’s church office in Louisville, Kentucky. Alveda was jailed during the open housing movement. She sees the pro-life movement as a continuation of the civil rights struggle.

King is a former college professor and served in the Georgia State House of Representatives. She is a bestselling author and a Fox News contributor. In addition, she is a Senior Fellow with the Howard Center for Family, Religion & Society and currently 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.
