Special Display: "Taking Down the Ropes"

The Billy Graham Library
4330 Westmont Drive Charlotte, NC 28217
Come explore this special display about Billy Graham’s pivotal role in the civil rights movement through exclusive memorabilia, rare photographs and captivating stories. Learn about Billy Graham’s fight for racial equality based on the Scriptures, & the remarkable African Americans who helped shape his ministry during the 1950s and ’60s. On display now through Feb. 29 in the Journey of Faith tour, guests can get a closer look at Mr. Graham’s relationship with Martin Luther King, Jr. & view fascinating artifacts like the key to the city of New Orleans given to Billy Graham, as well as a 1988 South Africa Crusade invitation—asking Billy to preach in a country still under oppressive apartheid policy. This display is free to view & open to the public. Guests visiting the Library during this time will also receive a complimentary DVD copy of a special documentary, "Taking Down the Ropes of Segregation: Billy Graham, Martin Luther King, Jr., Civil Rights, & Apartheid" (while supplies last).
