article top

Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. was born this day, Jan. 15,
1929. A Baptist minister, like his father and grandfather, he
pastored Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama, and
Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, before forming the Southern
Christian Leadership Conference. Reverend King wrote: “I must make
two honest confessions to you, my Christian and Jewish brothers….
I stand in the middle of two opposing forces… One is a force of
complacency….the other force is one of bitterness and
hatred…expressed in…Elijah Muhammad’s Muslim movement…. I have
tried to stand between these two forces…for there is the more
excellent way of love.”
