Bishop White’s “Letter to Martin”


Each January, retired United Methodist Bishop Woodie White pens a letter to his friend and fellow civil rights leader, the late Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., about the state of race relations and racial justice in America. This year his letter spans events from Selma to Ferguson.

Bishop White is the Bishop in Residence at Candler School of Theology. He was the General Secretary of The General Commission on Religion and Race of The United Methodist Church from 1969 to 1984.

GCORR is building the capacity of The United Methodist Church to be contextually relevant and to reach more people, younger people, and more diverse people as we make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
