Abstract:

Professor, civil rights leader, and minister Rev. Abraham Lincoln Woods, Jr. was born on October 7, 1928 in Birmingham, Alabama. Receiving his B.A. degree in theology from the Birmingham Baptist College, his B.A. degree in sociology from Miles College in Birmingham, and his M.A. degree in American history from the University of Alabama, Woods became a charter member of the Alabama Christian Movement. Serving as vice president alongside Fred L. Shuttlesworth, he served Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1963 as the deputy director for the Southeast. He helped mobilize the historic March on Washington. He was often asked to speak on behalf of Dr. King because of his oratorical skills. Woods was the first African American to teach American history at the University of Alabama. He served for forty years as a faculty member at Miles College, as pastor of St. Joseph’s Baptist Church in Birmingham for thirty-seven years. Woods passed away on November 7, 2008.
