This past week, Christians gathered from all over to celebrate Martin Luther King's life and legacy in Memphis, Tennessee. The Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission and The Gospel Coalition put on the "MLK50 Conference," headlined by Matt Chandler, Jackie Hill Perry, Eric Mason, Russell Moore, John Piper and Benjamin Watson.

Beth Moore, founder of Living Proof Ministries in Houston, Texas, sat on a panel called "Evangelicals and the Future of Racial Unity."
