The Echo Project

The Echo in Downtown Laurens on The Today Show.


Growing up, Rev. David Kennedy had to sit in the segregated section of his local movie theater in Laurens, South Carolina. The Echo Theater later became a Ku Klux Klan headquarters and an international meeting spot for hate groups until the Reverend made an unlikely friendship with the theater’s former owner who sold him the property. In our series Together We Rise, TODAY’s Craig Melvin looks into the theater’s troubled past and it’s bright future with the Reverend ready to re-invent the space.
