Karen Heyward-West is the president and CEO of the Franciscan Center in Baltimore, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary in September. The center was founded in 1968 and is dedicated to providing emergency assistance to those in need.

What Manner of Man: a Biography of Martin Luther King, Jr. by Lerone Bennett Jr. After reading this book and looking at my life and my own personal testimonies, I was encouraged and humbled at the same time that this great man was able to be successful against all odds physically, mentally, spiritually and most of all socially during a time where it was not popular to do so. Just Who Will You Be?

About a dozen youngsters - most of them black boys between the ages of 11 and 17 - were with Goldsborough.
