The Andrew Rankin Memorial Chapel
Nobel Peace Prize laureates Martin Luther King Jr. and Desmond Tutu preached from the pulpit. Frederick Douglass, the freed slave turned abolitionist leader, did too. So did W.E.B. DuBois, an author, scholar and NAACP founding member, and fellow early 20th-century leader Mary McLeod Bethune, who founded the National Council of Negro Women. Presidents John F. Kennedy and Bill Clinton spoke at the chapel, as did most of the 20th century's legendary black pastors and scholars.
