Dexter Echo: April 6, 1960



This edition of The Dexter Echo addressed to Dr. King opens with a modern day assessment of the significance of Easter in a "troubled world." The article mentions the racial conflict and civil rights struggles present in society, yet assures its "Dexterites" that the "sorrows and the sadness of Gethsemane and Golgotha will be forgotten in the joy of Easter." The first few pages of the publication also include a report on the church's recent "Youth Day" celebration and a salutation to members who are celebrating birthdays in the month of April in which Mrs. Coretta Scott King is listed. In addition to information regarding the church's staff, the newsletter also includes a section that highlights "Doings of Dexterites," a suggested book list for Lent, a report on the recent "August Club" meeting, and information regarding upcoming events.
