Rev. Wm. King Designated as a National Historic Person
could have lived a life of ease in the opulent antebellum South, but he was a man who dared to stand by his convictions.
He made his home among the oppressed and opened doors for those who had been victims of the most vicious racial cruelty.
His story is one of
passion, courage, faith, and determination.
