  King's tomb

The King Center gives great insight into King's life, work, and the forces that influenced MLK to become such a great leader. The site features King's birthplace, the Ebenezer Baptist Church, the first integrated fire station in Atlanta, King's tomb, informative films, and exhibits on the Civl Rights Movement, Ghandi, and Dr. and Mrs. King. Take the time to sit inside the Ebenezer Baptist Church and listen to a taped sermon given by King. The house tour is very interesting and gives you a picture of King's life as a young boy growing up in Atlanta. The site is run by the National Park Service and is free. The gift shops have some great books and tapes to continue to inspire us after we leave.
