First Baptist Church, MLK Street

in the Gothic Revival style by local black architect Dave Benjamin West
 and built in 1894. The church became one of the planning centers
 of the Civil Rights Movement during the 1960s.

 It is located on the same street as Brown Chapel AME Church,
 also noted for its history with civil rights.

A very historic place and I really like the way you composed this - gives the church a sense of majesty!

And it's against a beautiful blue sky. I've always thought I would get photos of all church buildings. I'm behind to say the least.
