Rev. Markel Hutchins is a civil and human rights activist who has put in the work for his community, his people, and most importantly, for disenfranchised individuals regardless of color, creed, or geography. CNN has called him “one of the most important voices in today’s fight for civil rights.” Coming from Atlanta, he belongs to the long tradition of American civil rights activists that emerged during the 1950’s and 1960’s. At 36 years old, Rev. Hutchins is a consummate community leader, political activist, and social justice advocate carrying forth the spirit and tradition of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to whom he has been compared since childhood.
