Witnessing for the Truth

Martin Luther King, Jr., Unitarian Universalism, and Beacon Press

“My own personal experience with Unitarian Univeralism began when I was a student at Boston University, back in the early ’50s. I can remember on several occasions visiting Arlington Street Church, where your distinguished Dr. Greeley pastored at that time. And I can remember beyond that. . . . In many ways and for a long time now we have worked together in a very meaningful way. I want to express my personal appreciation for your support, and let me say that it has been of inestimable value in the continuance of our humble efforts.”
The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “Don’t Sleep Through the Revolution,” addressing Unitarian Universalists at General Assembly, 1966
