The Southern Christian Leadership Conference has named Isaac Newton Farris Jr., nephew of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., as president.

King founded the civil rights organization in 1957. Farris is the son of King’s only surviving sibling, Christine King Farris.

The Rev. Howard Creecy, who had been president of the SCLC, died of an apparent heart attack on July 28. Creecy, 57, was a native of Mobile. Creecy had taken the leadership mantle at the SCLC after King’s youngest daughter, Bernice King, declined the top post.
