dr._alveda_king__largeKeynote Speaker:
Alveda King has always understood her unique responsibility and tried to steward her legacy well. As a “Guardian of the King Family Legacy” Alveda is a noted civil rights activist. She is often in demand for her knowledge and firsthand experience in the 20th Century Civil Rights Movement headed by her uncle Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and supported by her father, his brother Rev. A. D. Williams King. Alveda is a Minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, a grateful mother and grandmother. She is a respected lecturer, former college professor, author, mentor, stage and screen actress, Georgia State Legislator and Presidential appointee. Everything she does is to advance the work of God here on earth.

She has been elected to sit on several boards and has received numerous awards and honors. Through her ministry of Alveda King Ministries; ministry in her local Church, Believers’ Bible Christian Church in Atlanta, GA; and her vocation as Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life, she devotes her God-given gifts and talents of writing, singing, songwriting, producing and directing media projects and other gifts “to glorify God in the earth”. Among her most popular books are I Don’t Want Your Man, I Want My Own; Who We Are in Christ Jesus; Life at All Costs, a National Black Pro-life Coalition Anthology and King Rules, which shares a deeply personal collection of hard-learned lessons, timeless truths, and foundational principles.

Alveda often appears on television and is heard on radio shows across the world. She is a regular contributor for the News Max “Insiders” column as well as Fox News. Her media appearances have included CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, Huckabee, Beck, Hannity and other national and global media hosts. She has traveled to Africa, Israel, Europe, and other locations, and her global and biblical worldview is appreciated, though often perceived as “controversial” depending upon the audience.

The mission of Alveda King Ministries – where Jesus Christ is Lord – is to “enhance the lives of people spiritually, economically, intellectually and socially.” From this perspective, Alveda is available to speak on the following topics of expertise: Civil Rights, Racial Reconciliation, Non-Violent Conflict Resolution, Religion, Marriage and the Family, The Economy, Life, Youth Mentoring, Social Justice, and Women’s Rights.

Our contest for two banquet tickets has ended.  Congratulations Tracy LaFrinier!
