Rev. Joan Brown Campbell: King's Gift to Others

The gift that Martin Luther King, Jr., gave to others in the American Civil Rights Movement was the conviction that, whatever the cost, this was something that mattered, says the Rev. Dr. Joan Brown Campbell. Campbell speaks of her earliest encounters with King, when she was simply a young church committee member who took the risk of inviting King to speak to her home church in Cleveland in the 1960s.

Personal stories carry such power. It is amazing to me after years what qualities of Dr. King's life or anyones stand out. This seems to illuminate what some know that the love was his essence.

A very nice reminiscence about Dr. King. She tells about a side of the great man that I am not too familiar with. We just think of the heroic acts he did, not the human/humane ones. I thank Mrs. Campbell for sharing her memories.
