Joe Biden To Honor Martin Luther King At Ebenezer Baptist Church Atalanta 

US President Joe Biden will travel to Atlanta, Georgia on Sunday, January 15 to honor the birthday of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr (MLK).

The White House revealed in a statement that the president would travel to Atlanta to deliver a remark where the king served as a pastor from 1960 until his death in 1968.

The king’s funeral was held at Ebenezer Baptist church, following his assassination on April 4, 1968.

Joe Biden also visited the Ebenezer Baptist Church and the burial place of the late Rev.

Here in Georgia, for years, you’ve done the hard work of democracy: registering voters, educating voters, getting voters to the polls.  You’ve built a broad coalition of voters: black, white, Latino, Asian American, urban, suburban, rural, working class, and middle class,” said Biden at the time.

The church members increased to over 6,000 people in 2021 at the time when Warnock the pastor at that time was elected to the U.S. senate

The other day, because this is America, the 82-year-old hands that used to pick somebody else’s cotton went to the polls and picked her youngest son to be a United States senator,” said Warnock in his speech.

The improbable journey that led me to this place in this historic moment in America could only happen here.”
