MAUDE BALLOU & MLK, JR.
Longtime First Baptist-West member Maude Ballou was interviewed by Washington Post reporter Karen Heller about her early career as personal secretary to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., during the height of the civil rights movement from 1955-1960. Now living in Mobile, AL, Sister Ballou first told her story to Charlotte media before moving to Alabama to be near family.
