Since we are celebrating MLK’s birthday, I thought it would be interesting to share some information about the Atlanta home where he was born.

Just past noon on January 15, 1929, a son was born to the Reverend and Mrs. Martin Luther King, Sr., in an upstairs bedroom of 501 Auburn Avenue, in Atlanta, Georgia.  It was in these surroundings of home, church (Ebenezer Baptist Church), and neighborhood (Sweet Auburn) that “M.L.” experienced family and Christian love, segregation in the days of “Jim Crow” laws, diligence and tolerance.

Even though the pictures do not work on this link.  The page gives you nice view of the floor plan of the home.  You can click on each room and find out a little about Dr. MLK’s life.  Click Here for the post.

Tell us what MLK day means to you.
