“Some Things We Must Do,” Address Delivered at the Second Annual Insitute on Nonviolence and Social Change at Holt Street Baptist Church

In a November letter King invited local pastors and their congregations to the December institute marking the second anniversary of the MIA. King described the four-day event as “the school in which our people will be prepared to lead the freedom movement in the spirit of love and non-violence.” Attorney Harris Wofford and Illinois legislator Paul Simon led seminars related to the conference theme, “Freedom and Dignity Through Civic Responsibility.” Archibald Carey, pastor of Quinn Chapel AME Church in Chicago, closed the gathering with a sermon on 8 December.
