Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site

Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site preserves the boyhood home of the great civil rights leader. The home is in the residential section of “Sweet Auburn,” the center of black Atlanta, two blocks west of the Ebenezer Baptist Church, where King’s grandfather and father served as pastors. Martin Luther King’s contributions do not need to be recounted here. Let us just say that he, at long last, healed the nation’s (self-inflicted) wounds and gave the country a new standard of citizenship: “Our aim must never be to defeat or humiliate the white man but to win his friendship and understanding.”
