Seventeenth Street Missionary Baptist Church served as the home of "mass meetings" for black Annistonians who planned and executed Anniston's part of the Civil Rights Movement. Reverends D.C. Washington (1937-1960) and Nimrod Q. Reynolds (1960-2008) hosted a succession of Civil Rights leaders at the Church including Rosa Parks, Thurgood Marshall, Fred Shuttlesworth, Benjamin Mays, Walter White, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Dr. Martin Luther King, Sr.
