The Day They Buried A King

On this Palm Sunday 49 years ago they put Dr. Martin Luther King Jr in the ground. On that​ day his mentor Dr. Benjamin Mays gave the final eulogy on the campus of his alma mater Morehouse University. I feel that those words spoke so eloquently by Dr. Mays still ring true today. If one man could capsulize​ the power of the life of Martin Luther King it was Benjamin Mays. I am honored this morning to present in his words, my voice Dr. Benjamin Mays, April 9, 1968, in Atlanta, Georgia, on the campus of Morehouse College.

"No! He was not ahead of his time. No man is ahead of his time. Every man is within his star, each in his time."
