Dr. E. Lavonia Allison – Steeped in the Struggle for Justice – GDN Exclusive, Vol. 2 Part II

Few civil rights veterans have the eternal fire in their bellies for justice and equality like Dr. E. Lavonia Allison.

Dr. Allison, believed to be in her 80’s (she won’t give her exact age), is best known for leading the Durham Committee of the Affairs of Black People (DCABP) for 14 years as its chair, vetting candidates for public office, and speaking out against policies that threatened to inhibit justice, and limit opportunities for her community.

The Living Word
Philippians 2:1-4
The Message Bible

If you’ve gotten anything at all out of following Christ, if his love has made any difference in your life, if being in a community of the Spirit means anything to you, if you have a heart, if you care— then do me a favor: Agree with each other, love each other, be deep-spirited friends. Don’t push your way to the front; don’t sweet-talk your way to the top. Put yourself aside, and help others get ahead. Don’t be obsessed with getting your own advantage. Forget yourselves long enough to lend a helping hand.
