Alfred Daniel Williams King (#613)
A.D. King, who was pastor of Zion Baptist Church in Louisville from 1965-68, was posthumously inducted into the Kentucky Civil Rights Hall of Fame in October 2010. His family has established the A.D. King Foundation to preserve his legacy.
Like his brother, King was a Baptist minister who believed in non-violent protest and worked for voting rights and civil rights. His family survived an attack on their home in Birmingham; he experienced violence again when his church in Louisville was firebombed. He successfully fought for an open housing ordinance in Louisville in 1968. He returned to Atlanta after his brother's murder to work at Ebeneezer Baptist Church. He was found dead in his swimming pool a year after his brother's assassination.
