Alveda King’s Role in Our Nation’s Future Deserves Our Support

by | Aug 23, 2013 | Blogs, The Strang Report

In my role as President of Christian Life Missions, I am wanting to encourage our readers to become donors of various ministries that we support. For that reason I am sharing this exciting update about the ministry of Dr. Alveda King.

Please read below and respond generously. 

This time I am featuring the work of Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The eyes of the nation were focused on Washington and the 50th anniversary of MLK’s “I Have a Dream” speech this week.

God has given Dr. Alveda King a huge platform. She is a strong advocate of Biblical values at a time when many “civil rights” leaders are siding with the morally liberal agenda. I am convinced that Christians need to support the leaders that they believe in and who are standing for righteousness. This is true if you support John Hagee regarding Israel or Pat Robertson on broadcasting. This is why I am asking you to read below and support Alveda King Ministries with a generous donation, as I have. You can click on the “Donate” button below or you can send a check to 600 Rinehart Rd., Lake Mary, FL 32746. Or, you can call (407) 333-0600 during business hours and give by credit card.

MLK-I-Have-a-Dream-Washington-MallDr. Alveda C. King Joins ‘Let Freedom Ring’

Dr. Alveda King, founder of Alveda King Ministries, encourages America and the world to let freedom ring in memory of the March on Washington and her uncle’s speech:

“Fifty years ago, a valiant group of people from across America and around the globe embarked on a ‘March on Washington.’ While there have been many marches on Washington possibly before and certainly afterward, the 1963 March on Washington remains the premier example of how unity of heart and spirit can transform a community, a nation and a world.

“My parents, A.D. and Naomi King, attended the march and were there when their famous brother/brother-in-law delivered the now famous ‘I Have a Dream’ speech. Back then, they were marching for jobs, decent housing and decent education. Of course, then as well as now, jobs, housing and education remain in the category of issues that impact all human beings from a common perspective. After all, everyone needs some form of income to provide food and shelter, and we all need some form of intellectual enlightenment.Donate really big

“Fifty years later, the march has taken on a different flavor and is more cause-oriented than the counterpart of days gone by. The 2013 march includes themes that go beyond those basic demands of 1963. History teaches us that causes can divide people while agape love can unite. During his lifetime, my uncle M.L. spoke of a dream; he spoke of a ‘beloved community.’ 

“For the last several days, people have tempted me to delve into the political melee about who is right about one cause or another. Yet I still cling to the hope that agape love will take the place of political and moral turpitude and that people will rise above debates about tolerance and reach rather for compassion and transformation.

“I will join the hundreds of thousands in D.C. over the next few days. I’m asking you to join us, and if you can’t come, please pray with us. Some of the upcoming events promise to be exciting and soul stirring.”

Alveda King’s cousin Bernie recently noted, “The response to our call to commemorate the March on Washington and my father’s ‘I Have a Dream’ speech has been overwhelming. Our coalition has organized a wonderful, diverse program, which begins in Atlanta, continues for eight days in Washington, D.C., and culminates with a global bell-ringing. We expect hundreds of thousands of people to join us in the nation’s capital for this historic event and many more to take part worldwide in their communities.”

The King Center will celebrate the 50th anniversary of MLK’s “I Have a Dream” speech on Aug. 25 by participating in a gospel brunch sponsored by InterContinental Hotels and Resorts at 11:30 a.m. in the grand ballroom of the Willard InterContinental, 1401 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, D.C. Dr. King put the finishing touches on his famous speech in his suite at the Willard Hotel the night before the pivotal Aug. 28, 1963, March on Washington civil rights rally.

On Aug. 28, there will be a “Let Freedom Ring Call to Action and Commemoration Ceremony” from 11:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Lincoln Memorial, which will feature remarks from President Obama, former Presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, the King Family, elected officials, international dignitaries, celebrities, youth and leaders from national and international organizations. Alveda King will perform a song titled “Let Freedom Ring.” For more details, go to officialmlkdream50.com.

“In my heart of hearts, I truly believe that we all long to be ‘free at last,’” Alveda King says. “I’m not sure how many remember the rest of the phrase from that speech delivered so long ago: ‘Thank God Almighty, we’re free at last.’ As we approach the march, let us pray for each other and love one another so that we can ascend above the looming abyss that threatens to reach that higher ground.”
