MLK Visits Montreat

In August 1965 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. visited Montreat Conference Center and delivered a speech there concerning faith, morality, the Church, and racial segregation.

As we remember his legacy, perhaps take the time to go to an event; there are many around Asheville on Monday and throughout the week. If you can’t attend an event, try to participate somehow in the MLK Day of Service by helping out a friend or neighbor in need.

You can view the full speech given at the Christian Action Conference in Montreat in 1965 below.
