Dr. Alveda King Mourns Passing of the Rev. James Orange: “We Have Lost a True Leader”


Priests for Life




Atlanta, GA – Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., commented today on the passing of the Rev. James Orange, 65, a leading organizer in the civil rights movement since 1962.

"Rev. Orange was a courageous, gentle giant and a loving friend of my family," said Dr. King. "He was with my Uncle Martin just before his death. He cared for us after my father, Rev. A. D. King was taken in the same battle as Uncle M. L. Recently, James told me that my father would be proud of my pro-life work. We called this civil rights giant 'Leader,' a sign of respect in the civil rights movement for the role of servant/leader, a role that James truly embodied. All of us who knew Rev. Orange will dearly miss him."
