In the summer of 1961 a young white seminarian from the North volunteered to work at the Ebenezer Batist Church in Atlanta, living in thr home of its legendary pastor, the Rev. Martin Luther King, Sr.--"Daddy King"--and Mrs. King.Gurdon Brewster's experiences that summer--working in a church in the eye of the Civil Rights storm, witnessing first-hand the realities of racial prejudice, sharing in the vibrant worship of the people, and breakfast tale conversations with Daddy King--would transform his understanding of the gospel and change his life forever. This memoir offers a uniquely intimate portrait of the King family.
