Abstract:

Civil rights activist and pastor Reverend Samuel “Billy” Kyles was born on September 26, 1934 in Shelby, Mississippi. In 1959, Kyles became founding pastor of Monumental Baptist Church in Memphis, Tennessee. When Memphis sanitation workers went on strike in 1968, Kyles invited Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to speak at a rally. Accompanying King during his visit, Kyles witnessed King’s assassination and was one of the people with him during his final hour. Continuing his commitment to the Civil Rights Movement, Kyles served as a founding member of the National Board of People United to Save Humanity (PUSH) and the executive director of Rainbow/PUSH-Memphis. Kyles worked on Reverend Jesse Jackson's 1984 and 1988 presidential campaigns and was a delegate to First African National Congress. He was appointed by the Clinton administration to serve on the Advisory Committee on Religious Freedom Abroad. Kyles passed away on April 26, 2016 at age 81.
