Bishop White reads his 2015 letter to MLK

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 was an active leader in the civil rights struggle in the U.S. and he continues to teach and work for racial justice. White was the first general secretary of the General Commission on Religion and Race. He is currently the Bishop in Residence at Candler School of Theology at Emory University in Atlanta, Ga.
