Alvin Holmes dies at 81; had served decades in Alabama House

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Former Alabama state Rep. Alvin Holmes has died at the age of 81. Holmes had been the longest-serving member of the Alabama House of Representatives before his defeat in 2018.  State House of Representatives spokesman Clay Redden confirmed Holmes’ death Saturday.  Holmes was one of the first African Americans elected to the Alabama Legislature after the civil rights era and was a fixture for decades at the Statehouse. His political career included battles over issues ranging from removing Jim Crow language from the state Constitution to taking the Confederate flag off of the Alabama Capitol. He began serving in the state House in 1974.
