Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at First Baptist Church on Ferry Street on Sunday afternoon featured the lively Cross Road Missionary Baptist Church Choir of Evington (near Lynchburg) and its pastor, the Rev. William J. Coleman, who is also president of Tri-County Community Action in South Boston. “Dr. King gave something that God gave to him,” Coleman told the packed sanctuary. In his remarks, Coleman urged Christians to respond to hate with love, to cooperate rather than compete, to take action and to not rely on the government as a savior. He also spoke about the tea party movement’s impact in politics. The event was sponsored by the Halifax County Business and Professional Council.
