Called the “People’s Pastor” for his long activist career, Herbert Daughtry in 1953 was convicted of armed robbery and assault charges. In prison, he had a religious conversion to Pentecostalism which led him to become a pastor in Brooklyn, New York.

In 1980 Daughtry helped establish the National Black United Front, which helped organize the national campaign for reparations and has worked [2] alongside the New Black Panthers. In 1982 he founded the African People’s Organization, which teaches the black origins of Christianity. In 1984 Daughtry became a special assistant to Jesse Jackson [3] during the latter’s presidential campaign. He has also helped organize a number of initiatives with Al Sharpton [4], particularly the 2006-2008 demonstrations [5] protesting a police shooting of a young black man in New York City.

A fervent proponent of Black Liberation Theology [6], Daughtry has served in a number of prominent positions with the World Council of Churches [7]. He also has been one of the principal leaders of the reparations-for-slavery movement in America. His church in Brooklyn is adorned with a banner [8] for slavery reparations, proclaiming [9], “They Owe Us.”
