Dr. Benjamin Chavis Jr. is an African-American civil rights leader who has previously served as the Executive Director of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and who is known for being an assistant to Martin Luther King Jr. Chavis was born in Oxford, North Carolina, and when he was 12 years old, he became the first African American to earn a library card for the public library.
