“Early on, Dr. King and I spoke about his method of using non-violent demonstrations to bring an end to racial segregation. He urged me to keep doing what I was doing – preaching the Gospel to integrated audiences and supporting his goals by example – and not join him in the streets.”
Jerry Richardson, former NFL player and Carolina Panthers’ founder, gifted this autographed helmet to Billy Graham. The two have shared a friendship for forty years. In September of 1996, Billy Graham, 77, preached at the Panthers stadium in Charlotte, drawing more than 330,000 over the four-day Crusade.
