BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — The Alabama home once occupied by the Rev. A.D. King, the brother of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., is being added to the government’s list of places that help tell the story of the civil rights movement. 

Interior Secretary David L. Bernhardt visited Birmingham on Thursday as the one-time parsonage west of downtown was designated as part of the African American Civil Rights Network.

Martin Luther King Jr. often stayed at the home of his brother, who led the First Baptist Church of Ensley, during his visits to Birmingham in the early 1960s.

The network of civil rights sites was created in 2017.
