Alveda King: A Mother's Day Testimony

Evangelist Alveda King : May 10, 2019 : Alveda King's Blog - Civil Rights for the Unborn

Mama's mother got wind of Mama's plans and insisted that they get counseling from their pastor, Rev. Martin Luther King, Sr. Granddaddy said: "Neenie, that's not a lump of flesh. That's my granddaughter. I saw her in a dream three years ago. She has bright skin and bright red hair and she is going to bless many people. There will be no abortion. We're going to have this baby."

[Alveda King's Blog] Acts 17:26-28 teaches us that God created one human race; and places us in families. We are not color blind, we are not different races. So, it doesn't matter what color you are, or how old you are, or where you are born. Everyone has a mother; sometimes the relationships are good, sometimes not. (Image: Meme by Alveda King)

I've always thought that my mother is the most beautiful woman in the world. When I was little, I wanted to be just like her. However, God saw fit for me to be born looking like my Daddy; a gift I've learned to appreciate.

In 1950, even though my parents were engaged, they weren't married. Yet they decided to "do things that grown folks do," so I showed up on their first date they had without a chaperone.

Mama was a freshman at Spelman College, and she wanted to wait to get married. Back then, pregnant women didn't go to college, married or not. So, Mama got a flyer at school about new "birth control" methods and a procedure called a D&C which were alternatives to unwanted and unplanned pregnancies from the Birth Control League which was changing its name to Planned Parenthood.

Mama's mother got wind of Mama's plans and insisted that they get counseling from their pastor, Rev. Martin Luther King, Sr. Granddaddy said: "Neenie, that's not a lump of flesh. That's my granddaughter. I saw her in a dream three years ago. She has bright skin and bright red hair and she is going to bless many people. There will be no abortion. We're going to have this baby."

Daddy and Mama got married, and I was born January 22, 1951; the first of their five children. The story of my rescue from abortion was a secret for many years. As a result, I misinterpreted family whispers and family secrets, and sometimes felt rejected and became insecure and rebellious at times. Along the way, I slipped off the golden path and had two abortions, a miscarriage and three divorces. God is gracious. I repented and am the mother of six living children; and eleven grandchildren so far.

About ten years ago Mother told me the whole story. We cried and repented and rejoiced together. Today, she calls me her "Angel Daughter," and I call her the Butterfly Queen because of her love for butterflies. Her favorite memory about butterflies is our trip to Callaway Gardens where a magnificent Monarch Butterfly landed on her outstretched finger.

Mama also has granddaughters and great granddaughters. We spend many fun hours together; cooking, entertaining, shopping, worshipping and praying and just loving each other. I have learned the value of healthy family relationships; how to pray for them and receive them during my years here at BBCC. I thank God that our family relationships are whole and healthy. Amen.
