President Biden spoke at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta one day before Martin Luther King Jr. Day. In his remarks, the president spoke of democracy and voting rights, drawing parallels between his administration’s domestic agenda and Dr. King’s civil rights mission. The president called the present moment in history “the time of choosing,” between “democracy over autocracy,” "community over chaos," and “love over hate.” He said that “Dr. King’s life and legacy show us the way” through the present, and he called on the congregation to “redeem the soul of America.” Dr. King served as Ebenezer Baptist Church’s pastor in the 1960s. Senator Raphael Warnock (D-GA), the church’s current pastor, invited the president to give the sermon on what would have been Dr. King’s 94th birthday. close
