Ralph Abernathy    1926-1990

 

Rev. Ralph Abernathy

was a key figure

in the Civil Rights Movement

of the 1960s and beyond.

 

As the young pastor

of First Baptist Church

in Montgomery, AL,

he and Martin Luther King, Jr.

were among the leaders

of the 1955-56

Montgomery Bus Boycott

organized in response

to the arrest of Rosa Parks.

After Dr. King's death,

Mr. Abernathy took over

the leadership

of the Southern Christian

Leadership Conference,

which he ran for nine years.

 

Many of the conference's

leaders had misgivings,

but Dr. King had wanted

it that way.

 

He had always praised

Mr. Abernathy's help,

and Mr. Abernathy

consistently said

that he did not mind

being in Dr. King's shadow

and that the two

were never rivals.

 

And yet there were

accusations in 1989

that Mr. Abernathy

had abused Dr. King's trust.

 

The complaints came

from prominent leaders

in the civil rights movement

after publication

of Mr. Abernathy's

autobiography,

''And The Walls

Came Tumbling Down,''

in which he wrote

that Dr. King had been

an adulterer.
