Sanctuary at Ebenezer Baptist Church to reopen in Atlanta

In Atlanta, Georgia, the sanctuary where the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. preached, at the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church, is being re-opened to the public after being closed since 2007.

The sanctuary will be re-opened by Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar on Friday. The site is managed by the National Park Service and has been designated as a National Historic Site. The Rev. Dr. King, Jr., had co-pastored at the church with his father, beginning in 1960 and concluding with his assassination in 1968.

The NY Theological Seminary is an institution dedicated to multiculturalism, diversity, social justice and religious tolerance. The mission of the seminary is to prepare men and women, from every background, for careers in ministry.
