Sometimes in the evening, the family entertained guests and held meetings in the parlor. Alberta King, choir director at Ebenezer Baptist Church, held choir rehearsals in the parlor with the choir members spilling out into the front hallway. The children helped serve refreshments after rehearsals were over.
Daddy King conducted meetings in this room concerning voter registration, education, and church business. The parlor was the scene of joyous family celebrations. The Christmas tree stood in the corner by the door during the holiday season.
