Remembering Rev. Dr. Samuel B. McKinney

Rev. Dr. Samuel B. McKinney, a giant of Seattle’s civil-rights movement and longtime pastor of the city’s Mount Zion Baptist Church, died Saturday in an assisted-living facility. He was 91.

The Legacy Washington program of the Secretary of State’s office interviewed Rev. Dr. McKinney and his family for an extensive biography published in 2016. Its title, a quotation from one of the reverend’s many moving public addresses, is We’re Not In Heaven Yet.
