National Prayer Breakfast

Front of souvenir program.

Today marks the 62nd National Prayer Breakfast.  The National Prayer Breakfast (which is really a series of meetings, luncheons, and dinners) is a yearly event held in Washington, D.C., on the first Thursday of February each year, and has taken place since 1953.  Barbara Jordan had the honor of leading the prayer in 1978.  Here are some artifacts from her appearance. 

Jordan's itinerary for the event.
