You have seen Dr. Alveda King on Fox News, and you may have read the cover story about her in Charisma in August 2009. You may know she is the niece of slain civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
But did you know she is also an evangelist? Especially during Black History Month, I believe this is a story worth telling.
