The Rev. Charles E. Booth, a celebrated Ohio pastor and civil rights activist who preached the power of prayer, died Saturday after a protracted battle with cancer. He was 72.

Booth was the senior pastor at Mount Olivet Baptist Church in Columbus where he preached for more than 40 years. He died while in hospice care, Tamara Hartley, a former executive assistant and office manager at the church, told NBC4i.
