Dr. Alveda King Presented Dr. Hotze with the Standing in the Gap Award at the Coalition of African American Pastors Luncheon


AUBREY R.TAYLOR: "On Friday, November 12, 2021, Dr. Steven Hotze was presented the "Martin Luther King Letter from Birmingham Jail Award" by the Coalition of African American Pastors (CAAP) at the Standing in the Gap Benefit Luncheon. I was honored to be present at the event. Dr. Bill Owens (second from left), is the founder of CAAP and his wife, Dr. Deborah Owens (far left), is the executive director. Dr. Alveda King, the niece of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., gave the remarks at the luncheon."


AUBREY R. TAYLOR: "I was honored to be sitting at the table with Gerry Monroe, Rev. Willie Davis, Sam Malone, Dr. Kendall Baker, Jeff and Donna Yates, Janie Hotze, and Jill Hartland, to witness Dr. Steven Hotze receive the Standing in the Gap Award."




EXCERPT FROM DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR'S LETTER FROM BIRMINGHAM JAIL 

"But though I was initially disappointed at being categorized as an extremist, as I continued to think about the matter I gradually gained a measure of satisfaction from the label. Was not Jesus an extremist for love: “Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.” Was not Amos an extremist for justice: “Let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.” Was not Paul an extremist for the Christian gospel: “I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.” Was not Martin Luther an extremist: “Here I stand; I cannot do otherwise, so help me God.” And John Bunyan: “I will stay in jail to the end of my days before I make a butchery of my conscience.” And Abraham Lincoln: “This nation cannot survive half slave and half free.” And Thomas Jefferson: “We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal …” So the question is not whether we will be extremists, but what kind of extremists we will be. Will we be extremists for hate or for love? Will we be extremists for the preservation of injustice or for the extension of justice? In that dramatic scene on Calvary’s hill three men were crucified. We must never forget that all three were crucified for the same crime—the crime of extremism. Two were extremists for immorality, and thus fell below their environment. The other, Jesus Christ, was an extremist for love, truth and goodness, and thereby rose above his environment. Perhaps the South, the nation and the world are in dire need of creative extremists."


Dr. Alveda King Presents Dr. Steven Hotze with the Standing in the Gap Award

About Dr. Alveda King

Dr. Alveda C. King is the daughter of the late slain civil rights activist Rev. A. D. King and his wife Naomi Barber King. Alveda is the grateful mother of six children and a doting grandmother. During the more than half century of her life, Alveda has worked towards her purpose of glorifying God on this earth by accomplishing many goals. Currently, Alveda is a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, serving as Pastoral Associate for Civil Rights for The Unborn, Priests for Life. Priests for life is headed up by Father Frank Pavone. She also consults with the Africa Humanitarian Christian Fellowship, founded by her mentor, Pastor Allen McNair of Believers' Bible Christian Church in Atlanta, Georgia. She is a former college professor, holding a Masters of Arts degree in Business Management. Her undergraduate studies in journalism and sociology helped her to become a published author, the most popular works being her best selling books Sons Of Thunder: The King Family Legacy, and I Don't Want Your Man, I Want My Own. This inspirational collection of Christian testimonies is used at conferences and workshops around the world. Alveda's Doctorate of Laws was conferred by Saint Anslem College. She has served on the boards and committees of numerous organizations, including the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, Coalition Of African American Pastors, and the Judeo-Christian Coalition For Constitutional Restoration. She also served in the Georgia State House of Representatives, and is an accomplished actress and songwriter. During the years of the Civil Rights Movement, led by her Uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Alveda's family home was bombed in Birmingham, Alabama in the heat of the struggle. "Daddy's house was bombed, then in Louisville, Kentucky his church office was bombed. I was also jailed during the open housing movement," she recalls. Alveda has continued her long-term work as a civil rights activist, speaking out on issues that face society today. "I believe that School Choice is a pressing civil rights issue. Perhaps the most compelling issue of all is the life of the unborn," Alveda says. "Faith in God, and the commitment to fulfill His will for our lives -- not faith in government bureaucracy - is the key to positive action. Have faith in God!" This is the message that Alveda carries to the world.

AUBREY R. TAYLOR: "Now is the time when our love for America must prevail. It is incumbent upon us to elect "PUBLIC SERVANTS" who understand that they work for the people.

We Must Make it Our Business to Nominate the Right Democratic and Republican Candidates in the Upcoming 2022 Primary Elections

AUBREY R. TAYLOR REPORTS©

Make no mistake about it, who the people of Harris County, Texas choose to give another term to in 2022 must be about substance, job performance, judicial temperament, competence, and whether or not our members of the judiciary are following the law with their rulings. And that being said, in 2022, it is incumbent upon the voters of Harris County to evaluate the job performance of each and every sitting "ELECTED OFFICIAL" on a case-by-case basis and not as a group based on their political party affiliation, ethnicity, or gender. 

ARE YOU THINKING ABOUT RUNNING FOR PUBLIC OFFICE IN THE UPCOMING 2022 MIDTERM ELECTIONS IN TEXAS?

If you are a candidate planning to run for office in 2022, you have to select the right candidate to run against. And the second most important thing to understand is that you have to select your race early, to avoid ending up in a crowded field of candidates on "SUPER TUESDAY" in Harris County, Texas. So, if you need assistance trying to determine which race to enter, please call (281)788-3033, and I will do my very best to answer any questions you may have.
