(l-r) Tom Wilson, pastor at First Church of the Brethren Chicago and Martin Luther King Jr, mid 1960s.

Where is MLK?

How is Martin Luther King Jr. remembered in your neighborhood? How would our national history be different if he had never been assassinated?

It has been 50 years since Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated…and Intercultural Ministries Invites you to consider his legacy in our communities today. I am inviting you to fill out a survey that will help us think about the ways our communities remember King and his legacy including in naming spaces and places in his honor. Is there a space in your community named after King? Please take a few minutes to fill out this survey to tell us more about it:
