African American History and Culture

Today was fun and also very historic.

We started out by going to the King Center (Martin Luther King Jr.) and seeing a powerful movie about the life of Dr. King and his influence on American history. After that, we headed down to Historic Ebenezer Baptist Church, King's childhood church and the place he would later on co-preach with his father. Inside it was very beautiful, but what intrigued me the most was the podium at the front of the church which I had seen him stand at so many times in those history videos, only this was the real thing.

As soon as we finished with that we went to his Gravesite and saw the Eternal Flame in honor of Dr. King. Overall I have to say that my time at all of these sites was an experience that has given me mixed feelings about how our country really works.

Our next stop was a personal tour of a new Gees Bend Quilt Collection. We had an entertaining conversation and saw lots of amazing quilts made from outgrown clothing, including: cordouroy, jeans, sheets, and lots of other no longer useful materials. We also saw the incredible Gees Bend books that Tinwood have put together themselves. It was a wonderful way to end our day!
