While visiting New York City a few weeks ago, I was walking around Columbia University and encountered a familiar sight.  A striking church with high tower and beautiful stained glass windows. On closer inspection, I realized this was the Riverside Church, the place where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gave his famous speech decrying the war in Vietnam a year before he was assassinated in Memphis.  

Thinking later, I couldn’t be sure my interest in Civil Rights history drew me to this building.  Then I re-watched “Spider-Man 2” and I realized the structure was so familiar because that’s the church Mary Jane Watson (Kirsten Dunst) was to marry Capt. John Jameson.  There’s an exterior shot of the church in the film which is basically the view in this photo.  

So, I was drawn to this bastion of civil rights and progressive action because of Sam Raimi and “Spider-Man 2.”  That me, absolutely me.
