Rev. Joseph E. Lowery

The civil rights movement has lost one of its most dynamic leaders and the city of Atlanta lost one of the pillars of the community.

Rev. Joseph E. Lowery passed away at age 98. A family spokesperson, Imara Canady, stated Lowery died of natural causes. Rev. Lowery worked closely with Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Jesse Jackson through some of the most important years in the fight for Black freedom. He was often referred to as the “dean” of the civil rights movement. Rev. Lowery is the definition of a meaningful life as every day he fought toward making the world a better place and causes that would forever change life for African Americans everywhere.
