A celebration of MLK's legacy

The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was one of our country's most passionate and self-sacrificing advocates for ethnic unity. We still have a long way to go in building a less racialized society and a more multi-ethnic church -- but, we wouldn't be near as far as we are if it were not for the teachings and sacrifices of men and women like Dr. King. Even forty years after his death, his teachings remain amazingly relevant and powerful. I have included some "classics" as well as a few you may have not seen before in this post. I hope they will help to encourage you in your efforts to build biblical, multi-ethnic community.
