Martin Luther King Jr. Prayer Service

Rev. Dr. Raphael G. Warnock, spiritual successor to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., preached at an April 12 interfaith and ecumenical prayer service at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen in Homeland to commemorate the April 4, 1968, assassination of Rev. King.

Rev. Warnock is only the fifth senior pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church, which was founded in 1886. He has been senior pastor since 2005.

“Now is the time for truth-telling,” he said. “Now is it time to call the nation to be the best. To stand tall with moral excellence.”

Cardinal Shehan Testimony

WMAR-TV news coverage shows Baltimore Cardinal Lawrence Shehan reading to the press testimony he gave before the Baltimore City Council Jan. 13, 1966, in support of an open housing bill.

“The dignity of the individual requires that no prohibition be placed against any person with respect to his place of habitation simply because of his race, religion or ancestry,” Cardinal Shehan said.

During his testimony before the council, the cardinal was booed by segregationists. Also featured in the clip are Baltimore City Council President Thomas D’Alesandro III and Baltimore Mayor Theodore R. McKeldin, responding to the cardinal’s poor treatment.

East Baltimore helper

Dwayne Coleman

Dwayne Coleman uses his free time to volunteer at St. Wenceslaus in Baltimore and the parish’s Lucielle Fitzgerald Outreach Center.

“If you look around the city, you see so many people that are not necessarily homeless, but food deprived,” Coleman said. “In the heart of the city, we live in a food desert.”

Volunteering at the food pantry, he said, allows him to aid in alleviating that burden.
