Billy Graham, perhaps the most famous evangelist in U.S. history, is dead.
Graham died at his home early Wednesday morning in North Carolina. He had been ill for more than a decade. His death was attributed to natural causes.
Graham got involved in evangelism at 16 and rose to fame in his 30s when he held “sin-smashing” revival meetings under a circus tent in an L.A. parking lot. He then created his own ministry — the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
Graham was at one time a segregationist but, after the U.S. Supreme Court handed down Brown vs. Board of Education — which ended segregation in public schools — he flipped the switch and became a civil rights leader. He integrated seating at his revival meetings, and became a close ally of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. They preached together to millions who listened to their message.
He also refused to visit South Africa during the Apartheid era until the government allowed blacks and whites to sit together at his revival meetings.
Graham rubbed elbows with world dignitaries for decades, from Buckingham Palace to the White House. He was counsel to a number of presidents, from Harry S. Truman to Barack Obama.
And this is interesting … Graham was a Democrat, but fiercely opposed the candidacy of John F. Kennedy because he thought no good would come from a Roman Catholic leading the country.
Graham was married for 64 years to Ruth McCue Bell, who died in 2007. They had 5 children.
Graham was 99.
Back-to-back: Cameroon Music trio drops another banger “I don tire”
Barely a week after the release of their debut single “jailer”- a remake of African music goddess, ASA’s hit tune, Cameroon music trio has dropped another hit song titled “I don tire”
In “I don tire”, the group Black Tribe denounces gun violence, rape, xenophobia and other ills plaguing country Cameroon, Africa and the world.
Recorded in the country’s two official languages (French and English) and dropping at a time when there is an international pressure for ceasefire between country’s separatist and government forces in the country’s English speaking regions, Black Tribe is in no small way adding its voice to the peace crusade many are now championing back home.
In a press release announcing the latest hit from their camp, the group writes “With so much disunity, hate, fear and uncertainty around us today, it’s our duty, every one of us to contribute in building a more peaceful world for our children”
The group Black Tribe consists of three members-M Consty, Larry Paize and Ernest Chicho
They have also hinted a full album on course to be releases in the months ahead
