A Summer With The King Family
Today, more than half a million Americans are beginning "40 Days of Service" - a national event in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King's commitment to service.
Nearly 50 years ago, Gurdon Brewster witnessed first-hand the King family's dedication to service. In the summer of 1961 when he was a seminary student, Gurdon volunteered to work at the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta. He stayed with Dr. King's father, Daddy King.
As a white northerner in the South, Gurdon struggled with two kinds of discrimination that summer - from both African-American parishioners and his fellow white clergymen. He talks with Dick Gordon about his experiences in the pulpit, and his many one-on-one talks with Daddy King over breakfast - as well as the conversation he had with Dr. King about the art of loving your enemies.
