Members of the National champion Angel Drill Team from Illinois perform in front of Ebenezer Baptist Church.
Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta was founded in 1886 during the Reconstruction Era in the South. The Rev. Martin Luther King Sr. led the successful effort to equalize teachers’ salaries in Atlanta and was instrumental in getting African-Americans registered to vote long before the Civil Rights Movement. In 1960 the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. joined his father as co-pastor of Ebenezer. It was through his worldwide prophetic ministry that Ebenezer developed a new ecumenical and international posture.
