Fr. Pavone to Receive A. D. King Advancing the Culture of Life Award


Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, will be honored with the A.D. King Advancing the Culture of Life Award next month during the Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration Week in Atlanta.  The presentation will take place during a January 14th program honoring Rev. A.D. Williams King entitled, "Brother to the Dreamer, the Half that's Never Been Told."


"This is a great, great honor to be given an award named for one of the pioneers for equal rights in our nation, Rev. A.D. King," said Fr. Pavone.  "The struggle to which Rev. King devoted his life, equal rights under the law, continues today, as we strive to return protection to the most vulnerable among us, the children in the womb."


The night of Fr. Pavone's award will also feature the premiere of a new documentary on the life of Rev. A.D. King, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s younger brother and fellow civil rights leader, entitled "A.D. King, the Half that's Never Been Told."  Giving the keynote address that evening will be longtime civil rights champion Rev. Dr. Otis Moss.
