Biographical & Historical Note

Ed King, a native Mississippian, was a major figure in the civil rights movement in Mississippi. In the 1960s, King and his wife, Jeanette, returned to Mississippi from the North, and King began working as chaplain at Tougaloo College, a predominantly black school in Jackson. A Methodist clergyman, King was denied membership to the white Mississippi Methodist Conference due to his liberal racial views. The black Mississippi Methodist Conference, however, accepted King as their only white member. King was a key leader of the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party (MFDP). In the 1963 Freedom Vote mock campaign and election, King ran for Lieutenant Governor and Aaron Henry, president of the Mississippi NAACP, ran for Governor. In 1966, King unsuccessfully challenged John Bell Williams in the Mississippi Democratic primary for the position of Third District Congressman. King also served as one of the MFDP's delegates to the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago. King also helped found the Mississippi Civil Liberties Union.
