CHICAGO -- As the faith community of S.t Sabina church came together Sunday to celebrate The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., father Michael Pfleger stepped back from the pulpit to welcome a well-known guest.

Actor Harry Lennix, a Chicago native and former CPS teacher, for 30 minutes held class, lecturing the congregation that Dr. King was more than just what he’s made out to be today.

“He is one of those personages so esteemed for his courage and vision, so dangerous to the powers to be that his death is almost as important as his life,” Lennix said.

On Saturday, St. Sabina rented out a theater to watch the movie “Selma,” which, in part, depicts King’s leadership during a turning point in the civil rights movement.

On Sunday Lennix called up the youth of the church, telling them that King’s dream needs their leadership to continue -- especially in his hometown.
