Funeral service for Civil Rights icon C.T. Vivian held today | USA TODAY

A private funeral service is held for American civil rights leader Rev C.T. Vivian in Atlanta, Georgia. Vivian – a key adviser to the late Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., who throughout his life organized pivotal civil rights campaigns and spent decades advocating for justice and racial equality – died Friday at the age of 95.


Vivian’s casket was then taken in a processional to the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Park. King, whom Vivian closely advised, once described Vivian as “the greatest preacher to ever live.” In 2013, President Barack Obama honored Vivian, who had continued to promote racial equality in recent years, with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

  6. One of my favorite memories of Rev. C.T. Vivian: During one of the sit-ins by the Freedom Riders. The police were putting the arrested riders into a paddy wagon and were about to close the door. Then C.T. Vivian came from behind and asked the police officer, with a hearty smile, if he could climb into the wagon too. The police officer signaled him to get in fast. That was a special moment for me to see him.
