MLK celebration planned at DeKalb church
DeKALB – Community members are invited to honor civil rights leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Martin Luther King Jr. in the place he first shined: church.
King was the third man in his family to serve as pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, according to his biography on the Nobel Prize’s website, www.nobelprize.org. His grandfather served from 1914 to 1931, then his father served and King was co-pastor from 1960 until his assassination in April 1968.
Several congregations will reflect on King’s legacy today with the 2013 Martin Luther King Jr. Community Celebration. The service starts at 7 p.m. at the New Hope Missionary Baptist Church, 1201 Twombly Road, DeKalb.
