CALVARY BAPTIST CHURCH


The Calvary Baptist Church, built in 1921, was at the center of the city’s civil rights movement. It was the birthplace of the sit-in movement by Clara Luper and the venue of a speech by the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. in 1952. After the Oklahoma City bombing, the building was damaged by the ensuing explosion and left underutilized and in disrepair. Recently, the building was purchased by the offices of Dan Davis and preserved for the community’s use, as well as office space. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.
