Confederate flags found at MLK's church

1 post in this topic

(CNN)Confederate battle flags were found Thursday morning on the grounds of Ebenezer Baptist Church and the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site in Atlanta, police and church officials said.

Ebenezer Baptist Church is best known as the church where the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was baptized and where he, along with his father, served as a pastor. The National Historic Site is adjacent to the church.

"This act by a cowardly and misguided individual or individuals is provocative to say the least," said the Rev. Raphael G. Warnock, senior pastor at Ebenezer.

Atlanta Police Chief George Turner said surveillance video shows two white males placing the flags. Turner said police are working with federal partners, the National Park Service, Joint Terrorism Task Force and Atlanta's Homeland Security Unit. Police said they may release the surveillance video to the public.
