1. Ebenezer Baptist Church Marker
Inscription.  The world of young Martin Luther King, Jr., revolved around Ebenezer Baptist Church. Here his grandfather and father preached in favor of desegregation, voting rights, and equal pay—social issues he would later embrace and espouse. His grandmother and mother directed the choir and other church groups. He was nourished spiritually and instilled with a tradition of leadership and activism that would profoundly influence his life—and the nation’s.
 
Erected by National Park Service, U.S. Department of the Interior.
