GMBC Family, Join Us As We Celebrate The Life And Legacy Of
Our Civil Rights Leaders And Congressman.

Dr. C. T. Vivian, 1924  - 2020

Dr. C. T. Vivian was a bridge builder who dedicated his life to the Civil Rights Movement, helping to tear down walls of injustice and segregation, so could have a better future. He fought for Voting Rights of our people without fear and was a disciplined advocate for nonviolence; he was on the front lines in the 1960’s for radical justice. “God Gave Him Joy”

Congressman Rev. John Lewis, 1940 - 2020

Congressman John Lewis was dubbed one of the “Big Six Leaders” of the Civil Rights Movement.  He was often called one of the most courageous persons the Civil Rights Movement ever produced; John Lewis has dedicated his life to protecting human rights, securing civil liberties, and building what he calls “The Beloved Community” in America.  His dedication to the highest ethical standards and moral principles has won him the admiration of many of his colleagues on both sides in the United States Congress.  He has been called “the conscience of the U. S. Congress” and a genuine hero and moral leader who commanded widespread respect in the chamber

“Find a Way - To Get In the Way Don’t Give Up”

In 2008, The Late Dr. C. M. Alexander, Pastor of Antioch Baptist Church North, Atlanta, GA and GMBC President Emeritus had the vision “Connecting The Dots” of history pertaining to the Civil Rights Movement. He invited Dr. C. T. Vivian, Congressman John Lewis and Former Ambassador to the United States, Andrew Young to Antioch Baptist Church North to “Connect the Dots” of History by telling the story.  Selah!

Prayers and Condolences are extended to the families of Dr. C. T. Vivian and Congressman John Lewis.

Let us not forget,

Kenneth B. Martin, GMBC President
