[Signed by MLK Jr. & Sr.] Ebenezer Baptist Church Program, from the week of Nobel Peace Prize Award
Program from the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, where Martin Luther King Jr. was copastor with his father from 1960 until his assassination in 1968. This program is from the week that Martin Luther King Jr. was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Program includes a list of songs and singers from the service, birthday congratulations, notices to members, and activities for the week.
Documents signed by both Martin Luther King, Jr. and his father individually are exceptionally rare, and to have a document from such a precipitous moment in King’s history signed by both make it an incredible artifact in the history of the civil rights movement.
