President Ralph David Abernathy files, circa 1962-1989
Boxes 12 - 86; OP1

Biographical Note

Ralph David Abernathy (1926-1990) was born David Abernathy in Linden, Alabama. As a teenager, his sister nicknamed him "Ralph David" after an admired professor and the name stuck. He served in the Army during World War II, was ordained as a Baptist minister in 1948, and graduated from Alabama State University in 1950. He received a master's degree in sociology from Atlanta University in 1951 and went on to serve as pastor of the First Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama. A year later, he married Juanita Odesssa Jones, and it was during his time in Montgomery that he met and befriended Martin Luther King, Jr.

Abernathy and King marched and worked side by side throughout the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s, and were each among the founders of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in 1957. Abernathy served the organization first as Secretary/Treasurer and then as Vice President at Large. As Vice President, he was handpicked by King to be successor to the presidency. Also as Vice President, Abernathy assumed a primary role in planning the Poor People's Campaign, with which he continued to be actively involved as president. After King was assassinated on April 4, 1968, Abernathy accepted the position of president of SCLC. In this role, Abernathy continued to speak on the necessity of voting rights and equal rights for all, but became much more vocal on the issues of poverty and labor. Efforts such as SCLC's involvement with the Charleston, South Carolina, Hospital Worker's strike in 1969 reflect this shift. Abernathy resigned from SCLC in 1977 to run for Congress. Though he lost the race, he continued to be an active member and President Emeritus of the SCLC throughout the 1980s. Abernathy served as pastor of West Hunter Street Baptist Church in Atlanta from 1961 until his death in 1990. He published an autobiography, And the Walls Came Tumbling Down, in 1989.

Scope and Content Note

The subseries consists of the records of the presidency of Ralph David Abernathy from 1968-1989, and consists of correspondence, administrative records, speeches, statements and other writings, and subject files. Correspondence contains letters both to and from Abernathy, as well as some letters addressed to SCLC and received during his presidency. Some letters are written in French, German, Russian, Portuguese and Spanish. A significant portion of the correspondence for 1968 documents Abernathy's arrest and incarceration during the Poor People's Campaign demonstrations at Resurrection City in Washington, D.C.

Administrative records document Abernathy's involvement in the Charleston Hospital Worker's strike in South Carolina in 1969, the Poor People's Campaign, Operation Breadbasket, and the Minister's Leadership Training Program. Also present are general administrative records such as memoranda, schedules and itineraries, meeting minutes and agendas, and mail logs that document general activities and management of the organization. Much of the material, however, is incomplete, and reflects the work of Abernathy's secretaries Kay Jackson and Terrie Randolph.

Speech files document Abernathy's speaking engagements between 1969 and 1976. These files often consist of correspondence arranging the engagements, contracts and newspaper clippings, as well as the texts of the speeches he delivered. The speeches rarely were titled, and are primarily arranged by date, event and location. Speech titles are included when they are known. Topics covered include the Vietnam War, Black history, the history and future of the Civil Rights Movement, the Black church, civic unity, and religion and theology. Statements and other writings reflect Abernathy's position on the issues of the day, and may contain drafts and/or final versions of the writing. Abernathy's statement on the publication of his autobiography in 1989 is the one writing included here that post-dates his tenure as President.

The subject files contain both files of collected information about various topics, as well as files documenting Abernathy's involvement in organizations and events outside of the SCLC, including the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights, Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change, West Hunter Street Baptist Church and the World Peace Council. Subject files also contain writings by others, including Abernathy's wife Juanita Odessa Jones Abernathy and Coretta Scott King.
