The Weeden Family Singers not only share a special love of gospel music, but also a family legacy with MLK Jr.  Their ancestor Dr. John Weeden  was a well-known Baptist minister in Cleveland who often invited MLK Jr. to speak at St. Timothy Baptist Church. The two men also worked together on voter registration drives.
