I Was There: Remembering Martin Luther King, Jr.

Have you ever experienced a moment when you were forced to put your beliefs into action? When you knew you couldn’t sit idly by and wait for someone else to take a stand?

For Don McEvoy, a friend and colleague of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. that moment came in his early 20s when he was a young pastor in the segregated south during the 1950s.

In this video Don McEvoy shared with us the moment that made him realize that he wanted to dedicate his life to the fight for civil rights.

Don McEvoy is a resident at Wesley Palms Retirement Community. We’ll be posting more of his interview in the weeks to come. Stay tuned!
