Englewood, NJ - The widow of late Albany attorney, C. B. King has died after battling cancer. Carol R. King would have been 80 in just days.
She is well known in South Georgia as a campaigner for civil rights, and a contemporary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and was a guiding force in civil rights in Albany and South Georgia.
She formed an innovative child care pre-school program in Albany in the mid-sixties, which was a rarity in that it was integrated during a time of prevalent segregation. She went on the become the first Head Start Executive Director in the South. Mrs. King was elected to the Dougherty County School Board in 1988.
In a press release issued Thursday afternoon, Albany's Charles Sherrod, himself a civil rights stalwart, called King a pioneer and a woman of determination. "You couldn't sit her down with a nasty stare or nasty threat. She loved her children at Harambee and would go from hell to eternity to fight for their cause."
Funeral services will be held at Mount Zion Baptist Church, 1905 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive in Albany, Georgia Wednesday, October 3rd at 11 a.m. with grave-side burial to follow. Mrs. King will be buried along side her husband Atty. C.B. King in Riverside-Oakview Cemetery 200 Cotton Avenue.
In lieu of flowers, the family has requested gifts be donated to the C.B. King Scholarship Fund, c/o Ms. Peggy King Jorde, 280 Oakwood Road, Englewood, NJ 07631.
