How did Rev Robert Seymour die? – Cause of Death

pastor and longtime civil rights activist Rev. Robert Seymour has died at age 95.

Seymour became the first pastor at Chapel Hill’s Binkley Memorial Baptist Church in 1959. During the 1960s, he fought for racial integration of both his church and the wider community, a stance that earned him a dubious reputation among more conservative Southern Baptists.

His death was confirmed by Binkley Memorial Baptist Church’s office, which sent a message to its congregation Sunday afternoon.

Seymour is survived by his two children, Frances and Rob, and grandchildren.

Just saw a tweet from Alex Graham about the death of Reverend Robert Seymour. He was not a good man, he was a GREAT man. He was Dean Smith’s mentor and encouraged him to take a black member of their church–Binkley Baptist–into a segregated restaurant in Chapel Hill in 1958.
