Abstract:

Civil rights leader, minister and nonprofit executive Joseph Lowery was born on October 6, 1921 in Huntsville, Alabama. Having earned numerous degrees, including a D.Div. degree, Lowery spent forty-five years as a minister. He became involved in the Civil Rights Movement in the 1950s. In 1957, he co-founded the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He led the famous 1965 Selma to Montgomery March. Lowery's focus on civil rights extended beyond the United States, having met with Middle Eastern leaders and protested against apartheid in South Africa. Lowery was a co-founder and former president of the Black Leadership Forum. Lowery retired from SCLC as president and CEO in 1998. After he retired, he worked to encourage African Americans to vote. He was honored many times, including an NAACP Lifetime Achievement Award. Essence magazine twice rated him as one of the Fifteen Greatest Black Preachers.
