     Let's join LaSuria Kandi Chalmers in a conversation with Mamie King- Chalmers Civil Rights Activist.

    Mamie Ruth King was born June 19, 1941 in Birmingham, Alabama to a modest, working class family which consisted of five sisters and five brothers. Her father was Berry King Sr., a coal miner for Tennessee Coal and Iron Hampton Slopes Mines in the subdivision of Pratt City, died in 1965 of Black Lung Disease after years of working in inhumane.mine conditions. Her mother, Mattie Marlowe-King, worked untiringly at Marshall Durbin Chicken Factory.

    Mrs.King-Chalmers' famous iconic photos gained
     National attention and sparked the Civil Rights Movement.
     



    She has never received TRUE Recognition for her important role in our History.  A Minister and famous author Carolyn Maull McKinstry claimed her images/experiences as her own. McKinstry went on the Oprah Winfrey show Nov 22,1999,  after she was personally contacted by Chalmers to cease her lies/deceptions.  McKinstry continued appearing on talk shows, documentaries and gave speeches claiming to be the lady in the photos.

    Detroit News published an article May 2, 2013.  Birmingham News publish their article May 3,2013 & a follow up article August 30, 2013 where McKinstry issued a statement on her website CarolynMckinstry.com backing off her claim to photos and admitting that she was contacted by Chalmers.

    It was only due to vast media coverage that she issued a statement.  For years Chalmers tried to right a wrong that was done to her by McKinstry.  Chalmers book "STOLEN PRIDE" - 'The Life and Times of Civil Rights Activist Mamie King-Chalmers' will be released Feb 1 also a Reparations Fund has been set up to aide Mrs Chalmers in her latter years, she lost her hearing in her right ear from the water hose blast.

      Dang, the things people will do for attention and glory. I'm so glad your mom is able to redeem her place in history, LaSuria.
      Mrs. Mamie King-Chalmers, thank you so much for all you have done and continue to do.
