StoryCorps: Dr. Lawrence Edward Carter, Sr. and Carolyn Daniel

Dr. Lawrence Edward Carter, Sr. and Carolyn Daniel.

Yesterday the nation celebrated Martin Luther King, Jr. day, and today we have a story about someone impacted by King. Dr. Lawrence Edward Carter, Sr. is the founding dean of King Chapel at Morehouse College, and in the StoryCorps booth he talked with facilitator Carolyn Daniel about his long road to success. He began by telling about the time he first felt racial prejudice, which was during his childhood in the 1940’s in Dawson, Georgia.

Broadcast version of the story that originally aired on Tuesday, January 21st, 2014.


This story was recorded in partnership with the Atlanta History Center, which hosts Atlanta’s StoryCorps booth.
