Frequent contributing editor of Conservative Base, Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump from the very beginning of his campaign, was appointed to serve as a member of the Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission, according to a press release from the White House on Wednesday. Dr. King is a pro-life activist for groups such as Priests for Life.

The White House and media reported Wednesday night:

Alveda King has been a tremendous help informing African Americans about conservative values especially when it comes to the killing and mutilation of unborn babies.

The appointment of King was made in a White House press release Wednesday. She, along with two others, was appointed to the commission planning events honoring orator and abolitionist Frederick Douglass on the 200-year anniversary of his birth.

“The following individual to be a Member of the of the Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission: Alveda King of Georgia, Eric Madison Lowery of Maryland, [and] Naomi C. Earp of Maryland.”

The commission was established by bipartisan legislation signed into law by Trump in November that was sponsored by several Maryland and D.C. lawmakers. Douglass, who was born in Maryland around February of 1818, was a national leader of the abolitionist movement after escaping slavery and fleeing to the North.
