Look What I found! - Martin Luther King's Brother

Posted by Ersula Odom on

Rev King:

Surprise, shock and sadness are the feelings I felt when I discovered from an article in the Chicago Tribune; revealing that Dr. Martin Luther King had a brother, how he died and that he only survived him by a year. He was Rev. A. D. King. He co-pastored a church with his father, Rev. Martin Luther King, Sr. and was at his brother's side during their fight for justice, including helping to organize the Birmingham demonstrations in 1963. You can have it and the details for your collection, if it is still available. Check here for the Chicago Tribune, Tuesday, July 22, 1969.

King and Kennedy in the news together again

In the same news paper is an article about Jackie Kennedy and a book written by a former aid about her. Seen as a betrayal.
