The Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change was founded in June 1968 two months after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. Long before the physical structure existed, the Center's spiritual and philosophical genesis had roots in the story of a girl from the American south who dared to believe that she could use her life for positive social change.

This unprecedented collection chronicles the development, history, and impact of The King Center and the global contributions of its founder, Mrs. Coretta Scott King. Designed as an educational tool for people everywhere, this exhibition tells our story!

This Timeline is an ongoing exhibition project that will feature a growing collection of artifacts related to the history and global impact of Mrs. King and The King Center.
